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. 

  • Fri-Sat, Sept. 18-19 at 7:30pm
  • Sun, Sept. 20 at 2:30pm

FLI_Fibber McGee logoFIBBER MCGEE & MOLLY: A Radio Play
Footlighters Inc.
July 25-26

Directed by Amanda Marasch-Brinkman
Music direction by Matthew Nassida
Produced by Amanda Emmons Shumate

Cast: Joel Lind as Announcer #1, Steve Phelan as Announcer #2, Jeff Richardson as Announcer #3, Timothy J. Cox as Fibber McGee, Laura Berkemeier as Molly, Lauren Woodiwiss as Lady/Neighbor, John McInerney as Mayor, Sharon Shelton as Mrs. Wilcox, Louisa Joy as Teeny, Matt Lovell as Doc, Kate Crotty as Trio Singer #1, Kimberly Toft as Trio Singer #2, Katey Blood as Trio Singer #3, Emily Carroll-Martin as Solo Singer #1 as Amanda Marasch-Brinkman as Solo Singer #2 & Jay C. Gossett as Foley Operator

The Johnson Wax Program with Fibber McGee and Molly (the show’s full sponsored name) is one of the rare radio programs which has achieved a kind of immortality. Well after the series petered out in the mid-1950s, people still respond to the words “Fibber McGee,” even if they’ve never heard the original. Performers and listeners today will find the show a time capsule, full of corny jokes, and timeless references. The show also emits genuine good feelings, a true sense of happiness, and plenty of lessons to be learned.

Free, donations requested.

  • Sat, July 25 at 7pm
  • Sun, July 26 at 2pm
