Foote in the Door Productions (FDP) is an independently owned, Edmonton based, not for profit musical theatre company. They were founded in 2013 by Russ Farmer and Ruth Wong-Miller, who met as classmates at the Foote Theatre School. The name Foote in the Door is a hat-tip to where it all began. Since 2013, the company has produced five successful Fringe productions (2017's Disenchanted was rated 5 stars by Vue Weekly and sold out their full run) as well as several mainstage productions, including She Loves Me (2015), How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (2016), Carousel (2017), Little Women the Musical (2017), Company (2018), Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (2018), and A Little Night Music (2019)
Foote in the Door will present their 2019-2020 season starting with The Marvellous Wonderettes '58 (Edmonton Fringe Festival 2019), followed by Disney's Beauty and the Beast (November 2019) and Sondheim's Into the Woods (June 2020.)
