The Fairfield Summer Theatre in Fairfield, Ohio — a city just north of Cincinnati — began in 1998. Not wanting to see the new, state-of-the-art Fairfield High School Performing Arts Center sit empty all summer, a group of founding members elicited the sponsorship of Fairfield City Schools and the City of Fairfield. With the inaugural production of Oliver, Fairfield Summer Theatre was born.
It’s a non-profit organization and is committed to producing the highest quality theatre possible, staging at least one major musical each summer and one fundraising concert each winter. During the summer, professional designers and directors, college performers studying their craft, local actors, volunteers and professional musicians come together to produce a large-scale Broadway musical. Billy Elliot The Musical was the 2016 summer show, being presented there from July 21-24, 2016.
The cast was led by Nathan Goodlett, new to the role of Billy Elliot, but with impressive stage and dance credentials in the greater Cincinnati area.
