I am a season subscriber to the Walpole Footlighters. Last week I saw "The Foreigner," a comedy by Larry Shue. It was absolutely outstandinging! It was very funny! The actors were superb! The theater is very intimate and comfortable. There is plenty of parking. They perform 3 shows per season, one of which is usually a musical, and I always look forward to each show!

I have seen virtually all of the productions for the past 11-12 years and have enjoyed all of them. It amazes me that there is so much talent right here in Walpole and surrounding towns. I also took a "tour" of the facility with the Walpole Woman's Club which was most interesting. Since a large percentage of your audience seems to be the senior population, I think it would be helpful if the actors wore microphones. Other than that, I am completely happy with the Footlighters.

My husband and I saw "The Cemetery Club" at the Walpole Footlighters last winter. The actors all did a great job, the set was cleverly put together, and the price was right! It was so nice to see a top notch performance without having to travel all the way into Boston. I was hoping to see the following production of "The Full Monty", but my husband wouldn't let me!

We've been season subscribers for many years and love it more every year! We first started going before we were married as a fun date. Now as the parents of two small children, we love it even more...it is a cheap date close to home...what a spectacular show for such little money! The shows are well planned, have great costumes, beautifu sets, and lots of fun. We've consistently been impressed and happy with the performances. We especially love the comedy night special...very funny!!

I've been a subscriber for at least 5 years now-for myself, my husband, my father and his wife. We haven't missed a show yet! Footlighters productions are absolutely top notch, the venue is cozy and comfortable and the volunteers are wonderful. This theater is a treasure for our local community and for my family.

We have been subscribers for two years and have loved every show we have seen. The material selected is varied and never disappoints. We enjoy a lovely evening out that is most affordable. A big bang for our buck!

I have been attending the performances at the Walpole Footlighters Inc for approximately eight years. I have enjoyed every single performance. The scenery, acting, singing and costumes have exceeded my expectations. I find the shows comparable to anything in Boston and it is so much more convenient. The parking is directly across the street, there is no fee for parking, no traffic jams and the employees are all very gracious and polite. It is a wonderful experience all around. Diane from Dedham
