The great musical team of Lee and Laura Meyer have done it again. This talented duo, who brought you “Alice on Broadway, “Alice in Dollywood” and “Alice Goes to Heaven,” has added “Alice’s Heavenly Folly”to their collection of “Alice” shows. The shows honor their mothers: Alice, played by Diana Hirsch, and Jeanette, played by Penny Russell.

In this new play, the ladies are bored up in heaven and decide to put on a “Ziegfeld Follies”-style show. Other heavenly bodies are Danielle Bilderback, Molly Caplice, Noel Carlson, Kathy Chase, Adrianna and Tom LeDonne, and Chris West.

Some songs in the show are “I Don’t Know How To Love Him” from “Jesus Christ, Superstar,” “Anything You Can Do” from “Annie, Get Your Gun,” and “Wonderful” and “Follow Your Heart” from “Wicked.”

The production will take place at The Footlight Players Theater, 1705 Franklin St., on Friday, June 25, and Saturday, June 26, at 7:30 p.m., and on Sunday, June 27, at 2 p.m. Ticket price is $15 ($10 for children 12 and under). Footlight Patrons of the 1920-1921 season may use their gift cards.
