Dear Foothills Community Players' Friends,

We are excited to present to you our 2014-15 Season:

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Dale Wasserman is a powerful and thought provoking dramatic comedy set in a mental institution. It starts with the arrival of a charming rogue who arranges to serve a short sentence in an airy mental institution rather than a prison. He takes over the yard and leads others out of introversion, stages a revolt so that they can see the world series on television, and arranges a rollicking midnight party with liquor and chippies. He clashes with the head nurse, a fierce hard-liner, and is punished for his offenses. His final correction leaves him in a state he and the other inmates couldn’t imagine. Winner of the 2001 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Revival. Will be presented at the Clayton Center for the Arts, on November 14-16, 2014.

The Miss Firecracker Contest by Beth Henley is a comedy set in the small Mississippi town of Brookhaven, a few days before the Fourth of July. Carnelle Scott (known locally as "Miss Hot Tamale") is rehearsing furiously for the Miss Firecracker Contest — hoping that a victory will salvage her tarnished reputation and allow her to leave town in a blaze of glory. The unexpected arrival of her cousin Elain, a former Miss Firecracker winner, (who has walked out on her rich but boring husband and her two small children) complicates matters a bit, as does the repeated threat of Elain's eccentric brother, Delmount, (recently released from a mental institution) to sell the family homestead and decamp for New Orleans. But, aided by a touchingly awkward seamstress named Popeye (who is hopelessly smitten by Delmount) and several other cheerfully nutty characters, Carnelle perseveres — leading to a denouement of unparalleled hilarity, compassion and moving lyricism as all concerned finally escape their unhappy pasts and turn hopefully toward what must surely be a better future. Will be presented at the Clayton Center for the Arts, on March 19-22, 2015.

Into the Woods is a modern twist on several beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel - all tied together by an original story involving a Baker and his Wife, their wish to begin a family and their interactions with a Witch, who has put a curse on them. Will be presented at the Clayton Center for the Arts, on August 7-9, 2015.

We hope you will join us for our 7th Season!
