The award-winning script was penned in 1984 by British writer Richard Harris (no, not the actor!), inspired by a dance class that his wife, dancer-turned-actress Hilary Crane, suggested he check out.

Brenda Darling directs Alumnae Theatre Company’s production, which is choreographed by Alyssa Martin.

The production is this season’s Retrospective Choice: during the lead-up to our 100th birthday in February 2018, Alumnae Theatre Company will remount a play which was previously produced here. Stepping Out originally appeared in our 1989/90 season, directed then by Mavis Hayman. Check out the lobby display, which includes photos and the program from that show!

The story is set in the 80s, so prepare to be dazzled by bright tights, shiny catsuits, and leg warmers. Former professional dancer Mavis (Jessica Westermann*) and her grumpy piano accompanist Mrs. Fraser (Jeanette Dagger*) lead seven quirky women (Alyssa Quart Cartlidge, Linette Doherty*, Rebecca Grenier, Lisa Kovack, Kay Randewich, Felicia Simone, Mish Tam) and one brave man (Scott Turner) with varying levels of competence in a weekly community tap dance class.
