Footliters is proud to announce the addition of a TEEN SHOW to our 55th season! As part of our new strategic plan, one of the needs acknowledged was to provide more opportunities for our growing teen acting community to participate in and learn the craft of theater. We are pleased to announce FREAKY FRIDAY as our summer teen production.

 

This musical is licensed through MTI and is based on Freaky Friday, the Disney movie. 

This fun, upbeat show has gotten great reviews and is a crowd pleaser for teens and the community. Please stay tuned! Auditions will be held in May and performances will take place July 26-27 and August 2-3. We will also be holding an audition workshop prior to the audition dates. 

 

Directed by Julie VanHaitsma, with assistant directors Shelley Taylor and Jennifer Neff and produced by Kelli Simons, this show will have open auditions for any area students who will be entering their freshman year of high school through completing their senior year of high school. Mark it on your calendar and be sure to come out and support our teens!

 

Information regarding summer drama camps will also be published soon.
