Footlighters, Inc., will kick off the third show of its 2019-2020 season this Thursday, February 13. The production runs from February 13 through February 29. It will be held at the beautiful Stained Glass Theatre at 802 York Street in Newport.

Of Mice and Men features the return of award-winning veteran actor Bill Hartnett to the Footlighters stage. Bill was last seen onstage at the Stained Glass Theatre in 2013’s Tuesdays with Morrie, but Bill’s career spans over 40 years in the Cincinnati area. Together with his late wife Ellie Shepherd, he has won over 60 Association of Community Theatre/Ohio Community Theatre Association awards, and in 2008, they were both inducted into the CEA Theater Hall of Fame.

About the Show:
Of Mice and Men is based on John Steinbeck's classic tale of two migrant workers, drifter "George" and his intellectually disabled friend "Lennie". Lennie has the mental capacity of a little boy but the strength of a man. Lennie's obsession with things "soft and cuddly" make George cautious about who the gentle giant, with his brute strength, associates with. When the unexpected happens, their dreams take a drastic and tragic turn.
