Notice About Our 2019-2020 Season
May production of Calendar Girls Postponed to September
Once Upon a Mattress Now Opens on November 6
Dear Footlighters Patrons and Friends,
After careful consideration, the Footlighters Board of Directors decided to postpone our May production of Calendar Girls until September due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. We are disappointed to pause our 96th season, but the health and well-being of our theater community is our top priority. We believe postponing the show will allow us to share this wonderful show with our loyal patrons at a safer, healthier and more enjoyable time.
Calendar Girls will now open on Friday, September 11, 2020 and run for two weekends, concluding Sunday, September 20, 2020 and including matinees on both Saturdays and Sundays. We will rebook all May Calendar Girls tickets for the corresponding show in September.
Most tickets to Calendar Girls have automatically carried over to the new run dates. The day of the week, performance start time, and your seating location remains the same - only the performance date has been affected.
Tickets for Will be carried over to
Friday, May 1 Friday, Sept. 11
Saturday, May 2 Saturday, Sept. 12
Sunday, May 3 Sunday, Sept. 13
Friday, May 8 Friday, Sept. 18
Saturday, May 9 Saturday, Sept. 19
Sunday, May 17 Sunday, Sept. 20
For patrons with tickets for the third weekend of performances, we will work with you to rebook your tickets for the two weekends of performances. If the rescheduled show poses a conflict, we will work with you to select another Calendar Girls performance, issue a refund for your ticket or you may consider donating the value of your ticket purchase to the Walpole Footlighters.

We plan to move forward with our 97th season and anticipate Once Upon a Mattress will open on November 6, 2020 and run for three weekends concluding November 22, 2020. Sylvia remains unchanged and will run from February 5 – 21, 2021 and Dinner with Friends will run from May 7 – 23, 2021 as originally planned. You will receive our annual brochure detailing the 97th season and instructions for how to purchase subscriptions in May.

At the Walpole Footlighters, the health and well-being of our theater community is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) developments and following the guidance of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the state of Massachusetts and the Walpole Board of Health.
We continue to work with a professional cleaning service to ensure a clean and safe environment for our theater community of loyal patrons, performers, technical crew and the many volunteers who make our productions possible. We encourage everyone at the theater and at home to take the necessary precautions, including frequent and thorough handwashing to prevent the spread of illness.
We expect our production of Calendar Girls, opening on May 1, will take place as scheduled, but we will continue to monitor the situation and act accordingly. In the event we need to modify the schedule, we will update you and work with patrons individually. We will remain vigilant and are prepared to make decisions based on changing conditions. We will provide you with timely updates on our website, social media and via email.
Please stay healthy, take care and we look forward to seeing you later this spring.
