Footlighters has been a part of the Labor Day Celebration since 1948 when the Mayor’s wife, Haley Wood decided that Fort Bragg needed a little culture…. so she started a local theater group that built its theme around the 1890’s when Fort Bragg was booming as a logging and fishing community. The “Gas Light Gayeties” transformed into the “Fort Bragg Footlighters”.
This year’s play is once again part of the Labor Day Celebration. There are two shows that weekend, Sat. & Sun nights. Come join the fun as we Cheer the hero, Ahhhhh the heroine & Boo the villain. Find out just who stole the chimney – and who stole the jewels. Will John Alldridge and his family be thrown out into the cold, hard, wet streets of Fort Bragg by that dastardly villain George W. Swindler? Will their home be taken over by Diamond Lil and her Precious Gems? Will Wilber marry Emmaline? And for crying out loud….who ate all the onions?! Come have a few laughs with us!!!!
Every Sat. & Sun. thru Labor Day Weekend. At 400 S Main St. Tradewinds / Motel 6 Convention Center. Tickets $12.00. Doors open at 7:30, show starts at 8:00.
