In the spring of 2002, three nineteen year old friends named Joseph DeMita, Christopher Smith, and Laura Chandler met to discuss the creation of a theatre company. They had the will and the desire; they just didn’t have a name! As luck would have it, just as they were about to throw in the towel, someone walked into the room carrying a plate of freshly made fudge. She must not have heard the three when they asked her opinion on a name, because she promptly asked: "How about some fudge?" It stuck! In order to have "fudge" make any sense in the theatrical world, the trio created an acronym. In a stroke of genius, "Friends United Developing Genuine Entertainment" came to fruition.

The co-founders decided to select Merrily We Roll Along, Steven Sondheim's critically acclaimed musical about three friends who believe they can do anything they can dream of, as the first official F.U.D.G.E. production. Though it might sound crazy for a brand new company to produce one of Sondheim's more difficult musicals as an inaugural production, the musical mirrored the youthful optimism of the young company and those involved. The production used college-aged students for every aspect of production, including actors, designers, and crews. The show opened on a Tuesday night in August with a cast of 9, an orchestra of 12, and an audience of about 30. While not a huge financial success, Merrily We Roll Along proved that F.U.D.G.E.'s mission was in fact possible!

With a lot of hard work, creative thinking, and dedicated "friends united" both old and new, The F.U.D.G.E. Theatre Company continues to change and grow with each production. The company continues to be dedicated to using young artists, introducing new or seldom-done works, and producing quality shows for our growing audiences. What is truly unique about this company is its heart and soul: F.U.D.G.E. continues to be a group of friends coming together to produce professional-quality theater. We thank you, our patrons and our friends, for being a part of our company!
