In 1948 the Mayor’s wife Hallie Wood felt Fort Bragg needed a little culture. So began the Fort Bragg Footlighters, a small performing Gaslight Gayety theater group entertaining Fort Bragg residents and visitors to this day.
This year their production is WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY SNOOKEY OOKUMS or A FACE ONLY A MOTHER COULD LOVE, an original melodrama/comedy that will appeal to young and old. Show nights are Wednesday and Saturday thru September 1st; the last show is Sunday September 2nd. Doors open at 7:30 pm and performances start at 8:00 pm. Refreshments available.
Admission is a bargain at only $12. Find them at Masonic Hall (just North of The Restaurant), 428 N. Main Street in downtown Fort Bragg.
