The Footlighters’ Theatre in Berwyn presents its first production with “The Roar of the Greasepaint, The Smell of the Crowd” that will be running for the next two weekends until Sept. 25.

The production is an allegorical 1960s British comedy about class struggle. It will be directed by Cabrini College’s own Neal Newman.

It has been described as being “unlike any musical you’ve seen featuring murder, rape, bigotry and adorable, and singing children who cheer on the bad guy.”

The play will try something completely different as it turns the floor into a giant game board that will make lights and pinball-like sounds occur when the actors step onto it. The production will also feature songs like “On a Wonderful Day Like Today,” “Where Would You Be Without Me?” and “Who Can I Turn To?”
