Footlighters Proudly Announces the World Premiere of a new Musical – PLACES! – February 1st

Berwyn, PA December 6, 2012 – Footlighters Theater is proud to announce that rehearsals have begun for the World Premier of a brand new musical, PLACES! scheduled to go up February 1st, 2013!

With book, music and lyrics written by local author, composer and thespian, Danny Scott, PLACES! follows the musical paths of uniquely talented strangers as they grow to become the closest of friends in this heartwarming and toe tapping production about the relationships that are formed in Community Theater.

PLACES! introduces the audience to an assortment of “cast members,” including a teenaged ingénue and her counterpart, a talented young actor who really just “Wants to Play Baseball” …. an overwrought attorney with years of community theater experience….a cardiologist making his community theater debut…a stereotypical stage mom with her own secrets….and a talented Broadway veteran returning to his roots.

This unique production – written about community theater and for community theater – is bringing together talent from across the area. As an accolade to the plethora of talent seen in local productions and the bonds which connect this family of part-time thespians, the Footlighters premier performances are being supported by fellow community theaters who are sponsoring specific nights of the three week run. As part of the “Theater Supporting Theater program,” nearby King of Prussia Players will be sponsoring Open Night on February 1st!

Performances: Feb 1, 2, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 at 8:00 PM and Sunday matinee performances on February 3 and 10 at 2:00 PM. Tickets are $15 for general admission. $1.00 discounts are offered for members of the Community Theater Family who bring a community theater program with their name listed as cast or crew member. A special “Dinner and a Show” package are available for February 14 in honor of Valentine’s Day. See the website for details.

Tickets and more information are available at the newly renovated website or call the box office at (610) 296-9245. Footlighters Theater is located at 58 Main Avenue Berwyn, PA 19312 right off of Route 30 on the Main Line.
