With a book by George Furth and score by Stephen Sondheim, Merrily We Roll Along follows the story of composer Franklin Shepard, and the loss of the idealistic values of his younger self. Starting in 1976 and moving backwards to 1957, Merrily shows us the pivotal moments in Frank's life and the effect that his single-minded pursuit of success has had on his closest friendships with novelist Mary Flynn and playwright Charley Kringas. As the years roll back and motivations are revealed, Merrily leaves the audience with a message that despite practicality and disillusionment, dreams and friendships can never truly die.

Footlighters is a completely student-run group devoted to promoting musical theater at Case Western Reserve University, The Cleveland Institute of Art, and The Cleveland Institute of Music. Since 1998, the Footlighters have produced one show each semester in order to best serve the community. Recent shows the Footlighters have performed include Chicago, Sweeney Todd, Rent, Pippin, Beauty and the Beast, and West Side Story.
Footlighters gives students an opportunity to be involved in all aspects of theater production including directing, choreographing, working backstage, acting, playing in or directing the pit orchestra, constructing sets, making costumes, and publicizing the performances. Every aspect of the musical is done by a student. Each semester, over 1000 students, faculty, staff, and community members come together to watch the Footlighters take the stage!
