Footlights is Exeter University’s largest Musical Theatre society, now in its 32nd year. Each year, we strive to create show-stopping student productions to a professional standard. Following four consecutive sell-out shows at Exeter’s Northcott Theatre (West Side Story; Evita; The Phantom of the Opera; The Producers; Singin’ In The Rain), we are now looking forward to our 2018 Northcott production of the legendary Oklahoma!
Footlights, the University of Exeter’s biggest musical theatre society that brought you The Phantom of the Opera (2016), The Producers (2017) and Singin’ in the Rain (2018) are proud to present OKLAHOMA! – an illustrious classic propelled by love, community and integrity.
Based on Lynn Riggs’ Green Grow the Lilacs, this harmonically rich and wildly symphonic blend of ballet, ballad and barn dance is a musical that takes an unblinking look at a community trapped in the American economic and social underclass.
The student production of Evita at the Exeter Northcott Theatre is coming this January 29th-31st! This captivating story follows the rise and fall of a nation’s hero. It is based on the life of Argentine actress and political leader Eva Perón, who rose from nothing to become one of the most famous political figures in the country’s history. We caught up with Daniela Goldaracena Parkes, who plays the lead role in Evita, Eva Peron.
