A child has just been dropped off at the library to read while his mother runs errands. Greeted by a spunky librarian, who helps him find some stories he might be interested in, he settles down with a stack of books. As he reads, his world turns into a magical land where he meets the characters in his books. Peter Pan needs help fighting Captain Hook, Mowgli is running from Shere Kahn, the Tiger, Alice is searching for the White Rabbit, and Peter Rabbit is caught in the midst of it all! When Kid’s mother shows up before he can finish the stories and help his new friends, he learns that he can take them home using his library card and decides to spend his evening finishing what he started!




When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town,  Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school.   What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over his daughter and  the town’s youth.   When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation.  What emerges is a father longing for the son he lost and a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.  To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated score,  Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
