The Footlight Club is America’s oldest community theater and has produced performances every year since 1877. The Footlight Club’s members have sustained the organization's mission:
To present the best in non-professional theater to a broad-based audience, and to preserve and maintain Eliot Hall as a community resource.
Throughout its long history The Footlight Club has been part of the cultural fabric of Jamaica Plain and surrounding neighborhoods. We welcome the opportunity to partner with local businesses and nonprofit organizations whenever possible.
In addition to its full season of plays and musicals, The Footlight Club is committed to preserving Eliot Hall, a resource which is so much a part of its community. The Hall is undergoing a long-term renovation as its members and friends in the community return it to its former magnificence and improve safety and comfort for our members and patrons.
