Footloose Star Kevin Bacon Crashes Utah Prom – You Won’t Believe Where It Was Filmed!

Kevin Bacon was invited to prom by Payson High School, and he accepted.

The school, located in Utah, was the main filming spot for the movie “Footloose,” which was Bacon’s breakthrough film. The school is scheduled to be demolished this spring due to old infrastructure. The demolition project coincides with the 40th anniversary of the film’s release in 1984.

The students at Payson High decided to honor the building and its importance in the film by launching the #BaconToPayson initiative, with the goal of having Bacon attend their final prom before the school is torn down.

As part of their campaign, the students have hosted a “Footloose” movie night, performed a “Footloose” musical, and even renamed their annual Mr. Payson pageant to “Mr. Bacon.” An English teacher also got involved by assigning her class to write persuasive essays encouraging Bacon to visit Payson High.

“Essentially, this entire school year has been dedicated to the theme of ‘Footloose,’” said Rubie Raff, the student body president of Payson High, during an interview on “Today.”

Later on in the program, Bacon joined a school assembly via a call from Atlanta, where he’s currently filming his new horror-action series “The Bondsman.”

“I am incredibly impressed with everything you guys have been doing to try and get me to return,” Bacon told the eager students, who were anxiously awaiting his response to their elaborate “promposal.”

“So thank you, thank you, and yes, I will be there. I must go,” he announced, to the sound of thunderous applause.

Furthermore, Bacon expressed his gratitude to the students for integrating his charity, SixDegrees, into their campaign, describing their philanthropic efforts as “truly inspiring.”

Earlier this year, SixDegrees announced that it would celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Footloose” by creating and distributing 40,000 essential-resource kits to communities across the U.S. Payson High has committed to contribute 5,000 kits on their prom day next month.

Jenny Staheli, Payson’s student council advisor, expressed her pride in the students’ efforts during a segment on “Today” that aired just before Bacon’s announcement.

“Watching them take charge of this and run with it has exceeded even my highest expectations,” she said.

And with Bacon set to attend as their special guest, the students of Payson High are likely to have a prom that surpasses their wildest dreams.

“We’re going to celebrate in a big way, Kevin,” said junior class president Kaleb Dymock, to which Bacon responded, “I’m looking forward to it.”

He concluded with the famous line from his “Footloose” character, Ren McCormack: “Let’s dance.”
