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.



Friday Night at Footlight Registration is currently CLOSED. 

We will be announcing the 2023-2024 dates soon! 

Please check back. 

Our upcoming Friday at Footlight Night is in planning.

Upcoming dates will be released soon.

To encourage new and varied performers, we have changed from a first-come registration to an application to perform. Performers will be chosen to allow a mix of new and returning performers, as well as a balance of performance styles. Applicants will be contacted one week prior to the event via the email address provided on the application to confirm if they have been selected or not. 

Performances should be limited to 10-15 minutes. A keyboard, 3 microphones, Bluetooth, and a sound tech will be available. With advanced notice, we may be able to arrange for an accompanist. If you have any questions, you may ask them in the comment/question box on the form or call the theater at 219-874-4035 and leave a message.
