About Us

Aims and Objectives:

  1. To produce theatrical productions of an extremely high, almost professional standard (2 full musicals plus at least 2 Spotlights shows per year). Shows selected to be performed are usually from Broadway or the West End and have an emphasis on singing and dancing.
  2. To provide weekly Fitlights fitness sessions for all members.
  3. To offer at least 3 socials per term for all members (of which at least 1 does not involve alcohol).
  4. To create and maintain an environment where all members feel welcomed, valued and encouraged to develop their talent (both performers and those who work offstage).

The University of Exeter’s biggest musical theatre society, committed to delivering fully realised, spectacle-filled productions throughout the year!

Footlights perform two annual show-stopping productions; one at the Exeter Northcott Theatre each January and another in Term 3. 
Our next full show, 9 to 5: The Musical, will be performed at the Northcott Theatre in January 2022! 
Previous productions include:
- Ghost in 2020
- Oklahoma! and Sweet Charity in 2019
- Singin' in the Rain and My Fair Lady in 2018
- The Producers and Gypsy in 2017
- The Phantom of the Opera and The Addams Family in 2016
- Evita and Cabaret in 2015
Spotlights Show Choir is Exeter’s only musical theatre show choir, performing hits from a wide range of musicals.
A great way to be involved with the society throughout the year is through Spotlights Show Choir, Exeter's only musical theatre show choir, performing hits from a range of musicals. We perform in two Exeter venues, and then tour to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe! Our show, 'A Night at the Musicals' has sold out at the Fringe festival for 3 years running! 
All our members can also get involved in our weekly Fitlights class that combines all the joy of musical theatre with the advantages of fitness sessions and dance training: fun, firendly and beneficial! 
Becoming a member of Footlights provides opportunities to be involved in the cast, band, production, stage and technical teams of our shows, as well as stash, socials throughout the year and being part of the biggest musical theatre society on campus!
