About Us

Foote In The Door Productions (FDP) was established in 2013 as a joint venture between Russell Farmer and Ruth Wong-Miller.  The name “Foote In The Door” is a reference to the Foote Theatre School at Edmonton’s Citadel Theatre, where Russ and Ruth met as classmates.  Since that first meeting, both Russ and Ruth have successfully joined Edmonton’s non-profit community-theatre family, performing in many successful shows, both together and separately. 

FDP was formed in time for a strongly reviewed and highly successful show at the 2014 Edmonton International Fringe Festival.  FDP continued with their participation in the Edmonton Fringe show, with successful shows in 2015 and 2016. They will return this summer of 2017 with the all female Off-Broadway musical, Disenchanted.  

In November 2015, Foote in the Door Productions staged their first full-scale musical theatre production, She Loves Me. A full mainstage season followed in 2016-2017, with productions of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel.

Our vision is to bring classic musical theatre to Edmonton by producing musical shows that are accessible to all audiences.
