Footlighters Inc. opens its 2019-2020 season with the glittery, disco-pop musical Mamma Mia! Directed by longtime director Robert Weidle, Swedish supergroup ABBA’s hits tell the hilarious story of a young woman’s search for her birth father. This sunny and charming tale unfolds on a Greek island paradise: on the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. This feel good musical will leave you dancing in your seat and falling in love with ABBA all over again. It’s a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!

The Footlighters, Inc. has been producing quality community theater shows in the Greater Cincinnati area for over 55 years. The group was established in 1963 by a small group of community theater volunteers who wanted to bring theater opportunities to the west side of Cincinnati. In 1987, the group bought the Salem United Methodist Church in Newport and transformed it into The Stained Glass Theatre. The theater is on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated a Kentucky landmark. In September of 2018, Footlighters added an ADA ramp to the front of their building to complement the elevator installed in September of 2017, allowing access for all patrons with limited mobility.
