Do You Wanna Dance? Is Now Available for Licensing

By Music Theatre International on September 13, 2016

You’ll be dancing in the streets with this brand new Jukebox Musical created just for student performers about the power of working together and following your dreams, featuring pop hits "Dancing in the Streets," "Boogie Wonderland," "Bust a Move," "Walking on Sunshine" and many more!

Singing and dancing is what draws everyone to the town of SnapHappy, Ohio in May of 1995 to meet Mayor Pete’s new wife, Mona Lightfoot. But after she literally pulls the plug on the May Day celebration, the politics of dancing start to take the snap out of happy. Delaney, Chad, Lucas, Emma and all the SnapHappy kids are shocked when they hear that a new “dance tax” has been levied on anyone who dances in town. While their “boogie down” parents try to cope with the new tax, all the kids come together and take a stand.

Do You Wanna Dance? is the perfect musical for schools new to musical theatre. All of the hit songs are available as performance accompaniment tracks eliminating the need for live musicians and there are plenty of accessible lead roles and an expandable ensemble.
