Millbrook Presents FOOTLIGHT FRENZY
The Board of Directors and Artistic Director, David Leidholdt, are excited to present FOOTLIGHT FRENZY by Ron House, Alan Shearman, Diz White, Bud Slocumb, Mark Blankenfield, Brandie Kemp, and Mitchell Kreindel, playing from July 13th to the 22nd in the Poorman Cabaret.
The fun continues in the Poorman with FOOTLIGHT FRENZY. In a desperate attempt to save their bankrupt "School for Unusual Children," an inexperienced PTA group valiantly mounts an ambitious benefit play, written by a has been Broadway director. His near hysterical direction and the group's questionable talent turn the production into a shambles. The scenes shift back and forth from the real tribulations of the performers to the play they are "performing," and it is hard to tell which is sillier. This is fast and furious theatrical fun of the first order, with us watching the fun from the "back" of the stage!
FOOTLIGHT FRENZY is directed by Nick Brennan and features a mix of newcomers and season favorites with James Cougar Canfield as Paul Becker, Georgia Fender (Savannah Sipping Society, The Marvelous Wonderettes: Dream On) as Laura Becker, David M. Farrington as Tony Langdon, Christopher David Roché as Alex Malone, Kristina Walz (The Marvelous Wonderettes: Dream On) as Debbie Turner, and ?Galen Molk as Benny Dribble.
FOOTLIGHT FRENZY production team includes Set Design by Joshua E. Gallagher, Costume Design by Shivanna Sooknanan, Lighting Design by Caleb Stroman, Sound Design by Adam Visconti, and Props Design by David Singleton.
