Foote in the Door Productions (FDP) is an Edmonton based musical theatre collective. 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 four 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), and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (2018).
Foote in the Door will close their 2018-2019 season with Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music in June 2019. The company has just announced their 6th season, which includes The Marvellous Wonderettes (Edmonton Fringe Festival 2019), Disney's Beauty and the Beast (November 2019) and Sondheim's Into the Woods (June 2020.)
