Footlight Artists Collaborate on a Brand New Holiday Show

Published

Press Release

From writing comedy skits and musical arrangement to choreography and more, Footlight Players’ brand new holiday production will be a truly collaborative creation devised fully by the artists performing in the show. A Very Merry Footlight Holiday Special will make its limited run debut this December paying homage to those beloved family-oriented televised Christmas specials of the past, offering a heaping helping of nostalgia with a little tongue-in-cheek camp on the side.

Guided by frequent Footlight director and collaborator Kyle Barnette (Head Over Heels, Wait Until Dark), the show is designed to be an hour and 15 minutes worth of holiday escape that will also feature some special guest appearances including performances by Charleston-based dance company Dance Lab.

“It’s sort of like an old-school variety hour mixed with a touch of SNL and a lot of nostalgia for those 70s and 80s era television specials like Donnie and Marie, A Year Without Santa, etc,” said Barnette. “End of the day, it’s just going to be a whole lot of holiday-themed fun and a great escape for everyone.”

The show will feature hosting duties courtesy of Rebecca Weatherby and Michael Okas who were married on the Footlight stage in 2020 and feature a lineup of familiar stage faces including Madelyn Knight, Ari Snowden, Teresa Elj, Xan Rogers, and more.

Schedule:

  • A Very Merry Footlight Holiday Special  
    • Dec. 9th and 10th at 7:30 pm
    • Dec. 11th and 12th at 3 pm and 6 pm both days

The performances will be held at the Queen Street Playhouse (20 Queen Street). For tickets and further information, click here.
