Friday at Footlight

Friday Night at Footlight Entertainment


Friday Night at Footlight is our open mic event on the first Friday of non-show months. You have the talent. We have the stage. Footlight is a warm and inspiring place for our community, friends, and neighbors to come together to connect and celebrate each other’s talents.

Never performed? Perfect! We’re nervous too. Come share some anxiety and take a chance! If you’re a veteran of the stage, you are also very welcome.

Doors open at 6:45pm. Performances begin at 7:00pm. Family Friendly event: children are welcome (and encouraged to perform)! Admission is $5, but free for registered performers (up to a 15 minute set). Registration in advance is appreciated, and walk-in performers will be accommodated as space allows.

  • • A different "Featured Artist" each event!


  • • Snacks and beverages available by donation.


  • • Monthly "Dinner and a Show" raffle prize featuring local restaurants and Footlight show tickets.
