Welcome to Footwiki!
Welcome to the online home of the Footlite Musicals Production Manual, a guide for producing shows at Footlite.
The Board of Directors thanks you for giving your time and expertise to a Footlite production. We pride ourselves on being an all-volunteer organization and couldn't do what we do without your support.
This manual has been prepared by the Board of Directors of Footlite Musicals and represents relevant policies and procedures of this theater with respect to producing shows. It is intended to serve as a guide to all members of the production staff, especially those who have global responsibility for the production and the facility. We hope the information contained here will help your production run smoother and more efficiently.
If you disagree with a policy, procedure or rule, please address your concern with the board member who is designated as the board liaison for your show or with the full board at one of its regularly scheduled meetings.
We're requesting every producer, director and stage manager to read the entire production manual before beginning your production. The board liaison will ask you to sign a document indicating you've done so.
We wish you great success with your show!
