Wooster Footlights Presents Lotsa Jokes About Us and Wooster

The members of Footlights loved Wooster.They also loved making fun of both it and themselves. Only a few words of explanation are needed to make some of the sketches make sense today. The first is who this Henry P Copeland guy is who shows up in one sketch. He was the long-serving president of Wooster from 1977-1995, and was often the target of the troupes good natured ribbing. However, to our knowledge, he never owned a pet goat named Olivia. The second is the story behind the Tim Russell fan club sketch. It was a secret birthday present from the group to one of its members. He had no idea it was coming until he heard it broadcast live in studio. And finally, yes, as one of the sketches explains, Footlights was actually briefly syndicated in a town 173 miles to the southwest. We never quite understood why either.
