Welcome to Fort Collins Childrens Theatre!
Started in 1958 by a group of community-minded individuals, FCCT is founded on the belief that exposure to live theatrical performances is a valuable experience to be shared with families and children of all ages. FCCT's Fall production combines the talents of mature actors and technicians with the creativity and wonder of young people. The Peanut Butter and Jam Revue is a summer workshop program where young people are the performers and technicians.

Announcing FCCT’s Newest Partner!
We are extremely proud and honored to announce that Fort Collins Children’s Theatre has created The Debbie Dixon Fort Collins Children’s Theatre Endowment Fund in partnership with the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado.
Not only will the Community Foundation be managing this special fund, but they have agreed to provide a match for all funds raised! The match will be $1.00 for each $3.00 raised, up to $25,000.00. Our hope is to raise enough to insure that Children’s Theatre can continue to provide high-quality, family-oriented musical theater to Northern Colorado for a long, long time.
A very special thanks to those who have provided generous support to the fund so far:
* The Nadine Sheafor Fund for FCCT
* The Markley Foundation
* The Kluver-Morre Foundation
* The Don & May Wilkins Charitable Trust
If you are interested in making a donation to the endowment, please contact the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado (970) 224-3462
“I can see that you’ve got quite a mind for your age!
Why, one Think and you dragged me right onto the stage!
Now, I’m here, there is no telling what may ensue
With a Cat such as me, and a Thinker like you!”
So says the mischievous Cat in the Hat (ABBIE HANAWALT) at the onset of this fantastical, magical, musical extravaganza. Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Rocky, Anastasia, Lucky Stiff, My Favorite Year, Once On This Island, and Ragtime) have lovingly brought to life all of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant (RYNE HALDEMAN), Gertrude McFuzz (DEANNA GILLAN), Lazy Mayzie (FAITH FORD), Sour Kangaroo (JENNIFER VARNER) and all of the Whos of Whoville!
These classic, colorful tales are seamlessly brought together by Jojo (TAYLOR MOOREHEAD), a young boy and thinker of strange and wonderful thinks. As each story unfolds you will marvel at how relevant and profound Seuss’s subtle themes are; making this musical one that appeals to all ages.
The score emerges as a Seussian gumbo of musical styles, ranging from Latin to pop, swing to gospel, and R&B to funk. So let your toes tap, your fingers snap, and your imagination run wild, for…
“If you open your mind,
Oh, the Thinks you will find
Lining up to get loose!
Oh, the Thinks you can think!
When you think about Seuss!!”
