About Us

FOOTLIGHTS - Exeter University's biggest and longest running musical theatre society on campus.

Footlights perform an annual show-stopping production at the Exeter Northcott Theatre each year, as well as a smaller Term 3 show later in the year.
Last year saw Footlights take The Producers to the Northcott stage and Gypsy to The Barnfield Theatre.
There is more than one way to get involved with Footlights. We run an auditioned musical theatre choir called Spotlights which saw a sell out run in the M&D room and The Pheonix with 'A Night at the Musicals'. After the successfull shows in Exeter, Spotlights had a sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2017!
We also run a dance-based fitness class, Fitlights which any members can attend. The class brings together fitness with both Musical Theatre songs and current chart songs.
Footlights also have a legacy of fantastic productions including our legendary 48 hour musical- there are so many opportunities to get involved in so many different capacities! Footlights is going from strength to strength and this year is to be no exception, as work has already begun on our 2018 Northcott production Singin' In the Rain!
Becoming a member offers audition opportunities, production and band opportunities, stash, being part of socials we hold throughout the year and the chance to be part of the biggest musical theatre soceity on campus!
For more info about auditions and interviews, visit our website, like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter or Instagram for regular updates.
