Gilligan’s Island Musical Coming to Footlight Players – M.C.

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale… Footlight Players brings this family friendly show to the stage for a 2-hour musical tour of the television classic Gilligan’s Island.  

Opening August 5 and running through August 21, our favorite little buddy, Gilligan (J Swindell), Skipper (Thom Nelson), and Professor (Ken Siegfried) lead the castaways in a comedic search for an escape off the island when they encounter an ancient legend found on hieroglyphs left by a cryptic culture.  What do they say?  What do they mean?  Will they help them get off the island?  Does a mysterious visitor (Lexie Passmore) have the answers they need?

Join the familiar characters, along with 18 original and catchy songs, as they continue to find their way off the uncharted desert isle, find hidden feelings for each other, and through it all, stick together while fun and silliness ensue! 

Directed by Tony J. Thomas, the show also stars the great talents of Rick Henderson as Thurston Howell III, Kathy Chase as Lovey Howell, and Joy Scott as Mary Ann. Gilligan’s Island is Assistant Directed by Michael J. Thomas, with vocal director Adrianna LeDonne, Choreographer Denise Barkow, and Producer  Lara West pulling all aspects of the show together. 

“Gilligan’s Island, the Musical” was created by Sherwood Schwartz, the creator of “Gilligan’s Island” the television show, and his son Lloyd. Music and lyrics are by Schwartz’s daughter Hope Juber, and her husband, Laurence Juber. You’re sure to be entertained by this “Shipwrecked” crew.
