History[edit]

The Worcester Foothills Theatre, was founded in 1974 by Marc and Susan Smith.[2] Foothills Theatre originally operated from a 200-seat theatre in downtown Worcester. When this building was sold in 1982, Foothills spent 5 years putting up productions in various spaces. In 1987, Foothills Theatre moved to its ultimate site in the former Worcester Center Galleria.[2]

Foothills Theatre "suspended operations"[3] on May 10, 2009, due to lack of funding.[4]
