Historical Note

In 1959 the Fridley Women's Club organized a small volunteer theater troupe under the name of The Little Theater group. Shortly thereafter, the group was renamed the Footlighters and incorporated as a non-profit organization. The Footlighters offered three plays during a standard season.
