December 12-14 -- Home for the Holidays

A Cadillac Footliters' "Holiday Special"

Location: The Market at Cadillac Commons

In December, Footliters rings in the holiday season with "Home for the Holidays," a new a heart-warming one-weekend engagement, bringing together Juniors and adults to spread holiday musical revelry in an intimate setting. The dates are December 12-14 and the location is at The Market at Cadillac Commons.

 

“For the holidays, we originally planned to produce Miracle on 34th Street, but lack of a permanent home, schedule limitations, high demand for the Addams Family, and consideration of other major Cadillac community events meant shifting our season to accommodate our communities’ needs,” said Baumann. “We’re thrilled to provide another new performance opportunity and audience experience to Cadillac, while already planning to produce Miracle on 34th Street next season.”


January 17-18 and 24-25

In the new year, Footliters takes flight with Boeing Boeing, the sidesplitting farce following the traditions of well-timed physical comedy that audiences won’t want to miss.

 

It's the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn't be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard's perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Boeing Boeing is produced through special arrangement with Samuel French and will run January 17-18, 24-25. 


April 3-4 and 10-11 -- Junior Players

Footliters’ Juniors roar into action on April 3, 2020 with Lion King, Jr., the much-loved adaptation of the full Broadway show with area students between the ages of 8 and 13. 

 

A lively stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film, The Lion King Jr is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simba spends his days exploring the sprawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his kingly father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba’s wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father’s life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king. A vibrant and exciting tale from the great creatives at Disney, The Lion King is a story of love and redemption that nobody should miss. The Lion King Junior is produced through special arrangement with MTI - Music Theater International, and will run April 3-4, 10-11. 


June 12-13 and 19-20

Musical fans won’t want to miss Footliters’ final adult show of the season the weekends of June 12 and 19, 2020—the incredibly popular Mamma Mia, based on the movie of the same name and music from ABBA. 

 

ABBA's hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman's search for her birth father. This sunny and funny tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.

 

The story-telling magic of ABBA's timeless songs propels this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A large cast, non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers combine to make Mamma Mia! a guaranteed smash hit for any theatre. A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you'll never forget! Mamma Mia is presented through special arrangement with MTI, Music Theater International.


July 31- August 1 and August 7-8 -- Teen Show

Season 56 closes with a classic as Footliters’ upper Juniors perform Rodgers’ and Hammerstein’s Cinderella the weekends of July 31 and August 7, 2020.

 

Rogers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella is the new Broadway adaptation of the classic musical. This contemporary take on the classic tale features Rodgers & Hammerstein's most beloved songs, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It's Possible” and “Ten Minutes Ago,” alongside a hilarious and romantic libretto by Tony Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane as well as some new characters, and surprising twists. Cinderella (Broadway Version) is produced through licensing arrangement with Rogers and Hammerstein International.


“Fifty-five years of enrichment and entertainment has led us to this moment—an incredible and expanded 56th season,” said Joseph Baumann, Cadillac Footliters President. “As we search for own home to continue Footliters’ growth in and impact on our community, we could not be more proud of what we are about to show you.”
