The Cadillac Footliters has announced its 59th Season of shows in Cadillac.  After a record-breaking return from COVID-closures, we are so excited about our 59th Season in the community.


Starting off our season is a madcap comedy involving many characters, but only four actors - 39 Steps.  Then, we take a little time off and return with a two-night dinner theatre fundraiser production of Tony n' Tina's Wedding - an immersive Italian Wedding Experience that you won't want to miss - at Fox Hill Event Center!


Keeping our comedies and season going, Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind is a race from beginning to end and, luckily, you just have to sit by and laugh as the actors try to complete 30 mini-plays in a limited period of time and in a different order every night (chosen by you, the audience!)! 


Season 59's big musical is a show for all - Matilda, the Musical.  This show will cast all ages and is appropriate for all ages!  Season 59 will conclude with a cabaret performance by our Upper Juniors.


As a teaser, though, Season 60 will start with the Juniors musical - Junie B. Jones Jr. the Musical - in September 2023, planned to align with the return of Footliters drama camp!

Cadillac Footliters Receive $3,000 Grant from

Cadillac Area Community Foundation

CADILLAC, Mich.– Cadillac Footliters’ growing reputation for quality theatre experiences will grow even further in 2019 with technical improvements to their live performances. The non-profit local theatre company recently received a $3,000 grant to improve performances with new microphones from the Cadillac Area Community Foundation


“As Cadillac Footliters continues to grow, our need for new and additional microphones is vital to continue and improve the quality and impact of our performances,” said Joseph Baumann, president of the Cadillac Footliters. “We’re exceedingly grateful to the Cadillac Area Community Foundation for their support of Cadillac Footliters and the arts in our community.”


The grant, which was awarded from the Lakin/Weeks Fund for the Humanities, a field of interest fund held by the Cadillac Area Community Foundation, will fund the purchase of six new wireless headset microphones. 


“As we’ve produced shows with more than 30 cast members this past season, these new microphones will both improve our sound quality and allow more cast members to utilize microphones on stage at once,” said Baumann.   

Cadillac theatre-goers can experience the new microphones in action at the Footliters’ next production, “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time,” at the historic Elks Lodge on January 25, 26, and February 1 and 2. More information, including ticket sales, can be found online at



Now in its 55th season, Cadillac Footliters is a 501c(3) non-profit community theatre organization founded in 1964. For more than 50 years, Footliters has served Greater Cadillac with a mission to engage, enrich, and entertain the community with quality theatre experiences. Learn more at


Cadillac Leadership Class 2018-2019 

The Cadillac Area Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class of 2018/2019 is excited to announce our community service project: Leadership in the Spotlight! 


We are partnering with the Cadillac Footliters and Junior Footliters to help them take their show on the road! To do this, they need a portable stage and sound equipment. This will enable the Footliters to increase their reach in the community and perform at community events and small venues throughout the area. The Cadillac Area Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class of 2018/2019 needs your support in this endeavor!


Our goal is to raise $30,000.00 for the purchase of portable, modular stage platforms, sound and music equipment, backstage intercom equipment, and a trailer to haul the equipment. This new equipment will give them mobility, along with increasing performance opportunities, enhancing their large stage productions, and enriching the educational experience for the Junior Footliters by providing them appropriate stage and audio equipment. 


The Footliters are an organization that has been serving the Cadillac community since 1964. Participants ranging from eight years old to senior citizen are able to share their creativity and incredible abilities with our community through this amazing program. Approximately 150 performers and crew produce six shows a year and hone their skills in various youth summer camps. 


It is because of their dedication to performing arts education that we choose the Footliters. Please help us give the Footliters the ability to stage performances in a variety of locations and increase their artistic offerings to our community with your donation.


Thank you for supporting our class project and the Cadillac Community.
