Season 2018

Foothills Community Players presents our 2018 season. We hope you'll join us for a year of memorable theatrical experiences!




Kennedy's Children



This is an evocative drama of American idealism and the tragic fallout from the euphoria of the 1960s. Five lost souls are gathered in a bar, Valentine's Day, 1974: Wanda, a secretary-turned-schoolteacher, keeping John Kennedy's memory alive despite the inevitable slurs; Sparger, an actor grown bitter and cynical as New York's vital underground theatre movement becomes a commercial wasteland; Rona, a political activist who sees the movement collapsing from self-indulgence and apathy; Mark, a Vietnam veteran, now a confused, dissipated drug addict; and Carla, a dipsomaniacal actress channeling Marilyn Monroe.

Kennedy's Children will be presented by FCP at Second Harvest Food Bank between March 15-18, 2017 and will be directed by Michael McMahan.



You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown



Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh insouciance and playfulness is revealed. The new script features two new songs, particularly funny dialogue, and new, catchy orchestrations. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.


Look forward to ending your summer with this classic in August 2018, under the direction of Rebekah Word.




Stole



A Foothills Community Players original play, written by board member Lisa Grace Howard.

The young couple, Lucy and Justin. Both successful, both righteous, both miserably married. After a bickering date night, the couple finds a burglarized home, and in cleaning up the mess, Lucy finds a piece of woman's clothing that doesn't belong to her, or smell like her. With encouragement from her sister, Lucy sets out to get even with her adulterous husband, but after living a straight laced life for over twenty years, cheating is no easy game.

Stole will be directed by the author and presented at Second Harvest Food Bank on November 15-18.
