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.
This web site will be regularly updated with current news and events. The most recent news appears below. Use the categories links on the right to view related items.
Peanut Butter, Jam Revue Players is growing. Our very popular summer workshop is adding a session for older children. As usual we will have two sessions for children 10 – 14 years of age, but for years we have had requests for a program for children who have aged out. To fill this void we are adding Peanut Butter, Jam Revue Players II for children 15 – 18 years of age. These workshops end with four performances per cast/session on the Lincoln Center Magnolia Theatre stage. Here are the details:
Begins March 15, 2013.
Rehearsals – June 3rd – July 10th
Performance – July 11th – 14th
AM Session (Children 10-14 years old as of 6/3/2013) – 8:30 – 11:30am (Monday-Friday)
PBJR II Session (High School Kids 15-18 years old as of 6/3/2013) – 11:30am – 1:30pm (Monday-Friday)
PM Session (Children 10-14 years old as of 6/3/2013) – 1:30 – 4:30pm (Monday-Friday)

We are also offering Apprentice and Assistant positions this year.
Please download the Application letter for complete registration information. Then download the appropriate documents to complete the registration. (Follow the instructions closely because this program is “first come, first serve”)
We just received confirmation from the Lincoln Center about the dates for this year. Our program will run from June 3rd-July 14th. Rehearsals will be a bit different this year – our workshop for children 10 – 14 years of age will have two sessions, AM session from 8:30-11:30 AM and the PM session from 1:30-4:30. We are adding an Older Kids program (PBJR II) and it will be for 15-18-year-olds (High School age). This program will be daily from 11:30-1:30. They will also be performing a musical at the Lincoln Center. We have not yet decided on the shows, but are working on it.
We will still be looking for Assistants and Apprentices for both the AM and PM sessions. Please note that a student could potentially be an apprentice/assistant AND participate in the HS show.
Scott Wright will again be directing. We are working with the Vineyard Church for rehearsal space. More on that later.
We then move rehearsals to the Lincoln Center on July 8th and all performances will take place July 11th-14th.
Applications will be available here on March 15th.
