Season Update


Dear Patrons and Community members,

We are excited to announce our return to the Historic State Theatre, from June 9-12 of 2022 with our theatrical production of Footloose the Musical (details and tickets below). The cast has been hard at work since late February, and we think you'll love the show that's coming together!

We are still looking for 1 adult male (Wes, Ren's uncle) and 1 adult female (Burger Hut manager, cop, other small parts as needed) to fill out our Footloose cast. If you are interested, please contact me at the number below for details.

Love, Sex, and the IRS has been delayed until our 39th season, in the Fall of 2022. We have a completed set, on stage and ready to go but are seeking directors and cast, as Covid restrictions have prevented the previous cast from returning as we had hoped.

The lobby and auditorium have been repainted and have new carpet installed with a huge thanks to Wood Bros, the "Love, Sex, and the IRS" cast, and Luri DeSouza. We can’t wait for us all to enjoy it together.

Thank you,

Jennifer Beers




The Birdcage Theatre Presents:
Footloose the Musical

Music by Tom Snow
Lyrics by Dean Pitchford
Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie
Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford
Additional Music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top 40 score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

  • We are currently in the process of significant renovations, and parts of the theatre are under construction. Please excuse our mess while we improve our theatre for the community and you, our patrons.


Sponsorship Opportunities

Help Support Our Community Theatre

In order to provide the services described above, we depend on the community for the bulk of our support, both financial and staffing. While much of our income is from ticket and ad sales, these two alone are rarely enough to see us through a season by themselves. Therefore, we regularly have to supplement our income via corporate sponsorships, grants, profit sharing programs, and charitable donations from the community.

Sponsorship of a Birdcage Theatre production is a visible demonstration of your commitment to the cultural and economic development of our community. Choosing to sponsor a show can complement your company's marketing and community involvement strategies and provide a unique opportunity for employee or client entertainment. We are deeply grateful for the support of our Show Sponsors and are glad to recognize their support in the following ways:

Publicity Benefits: Season Brochure: Your business name and/or logo will be included in our season brochure.
Other Advertising: Your logo will be featured on our show posters. Your logo will also be included on our website.
Play Programs: Your business logo or name will be printed on the front cover of your play’s program. A complimentary half-page thank you advertisement will also be placed inside the program.
Curtain Speech: You will be thanked publicly for your support before every performance of your sponsored play.
Tickets: Reward yourself, clients or employees with complimentary tickets to the show you sponsor.

Please take a look at the 'Sponsorship Form' below for additional details, and instructions for submission.
