[Online]

A New Song Cycle
Music by Matthew Nassida
Lyrics by Lexi Rigsby

Directed by Amanda Marasch
Produced by Katie McCarthy & Chad Brinkman

A musical theater song cycle, explores the significant human moments of revelation and change. As we stand on the edge of a proverbial cliff – uncertain whether to retreat or take a step forward into the abyss – we are welcomed by the memories, good and bad, that brought us to the brink. This powerful new work examines the exhilaration and the fear that comes as we stumble upon our tipping points and allow each of us to see ourselves from the ether standing beyond the precipice.

With an all-star cast of performers from across the United States, we bring you an exploration into human lives. The Footlighters, Inc. is proud to premiere PRECIPICE: What Took Us Over The Edge, a year in the making, by the emerging musical theater writing team of Rigsby and Nassida.

After the final live broadcast performance, a video recording of the program will be available on our YouTube channel for your enjoyment at a later date.

Veronica Sawyer is a brainy, beautiful misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High School. But before she has time to get comfortable atop the teenage food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid, J.D. When the almighty Heather Chandler kicks her out of their group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass … until J.D. suggests a more sinister plan for that bullet. Heathers is a hilarious, heartfelt, and homicidal show based on one of the all-time great teen comedies.

The show starts promptly at the scheduled time, so allow yourself time to log into the viewing portal early.
