BROADWAY IN BERWYN returns to the Footlighters Theater

Nominated in 2019 by Broadway World for Best Production by a Local Theater and Best Special Event, BROADWAY IN BERWYN returns to the Footlighters Theater stage on March 20th for its 6th production of Broadway musical highlights!

The 2020 version of Broadway in Berwyn continues to spotlight incredible local talent, bringing their own heart and soul versions of favorite Broadway show tunes!  More than twenty-five production numbers will be featured from as many different Broadway shows.  In addition to many outstanding adults, this year Footlighters is featuring special performances of its “Rising Stars,” amazing Broadway-bound youth and teens who bring new energy and enthusiasm to the stage.  Each year, Footlighters patrons exclaim, “this show just keeps getting better and better!”

 

This event is Footlighters’ Sixth Annual Musical Fundraiser.  The five previous shows performed to great acclaim, providing significant financial support to the theater and requests for repeat performances.  As a non-profit community theater, Footlighters is dependent upon the income from its performances and the support of its benefactors to keep the historic theater up and running.  The Oldest Community Theater on the Main Line, located in a 19th century stone church building, Footlighters holds a unique place in Philadelphia’s family of performing arts.  Toward that end, the Broadway in Berwyn event gives local musical theater lovers the chance to enjoy some of their favorite show tunes, participate in a fun wine raffle and support the arts in their local community.

Once again produced by Sue Scott, now directed by Jay Schulman and with Music Direction by Marie Anderson and Stage Management by Abby Scott, the 2020 cast includes a large assortment of talented artists:  Keira Bauer, Bailey Cavallaro, Ellen Cohn, Melina Cruz, Shannon Daly, Macy Danenhower, Amanda Evans, Stephanie Fales, Bill Gilbertson, Alex and Sophie Gourmand, Cate Hashemi, Richard Johnson, Sophia Kogay, Maria Kollar, Julie Kremm, Maya Maloskey, Ilena Mita, Danny Murphy, Beatrice Osborne, Laura Peterson, Robert Rinaldo, Eva Serinsky and Lauren Yucha.

Broadway in Berwyn opens at Footlighters on Friday March 20th and runs for two weekends.  Friday and Saturday evening productions begin at 8:00pm; two Sunday matinees at 2:00pm.  Tickets are available now at www.footlighterstheater.com for all shows; just $20 per person.  Group discounts are available for parties of 10 or more.
