Looking for a fun way to promote literacy, exercise the imagination of children, and nurture cultural appreciation?
Try our School/Theatre Outreach program!
4-6 local performers will entertain groups large or small for an hour of fun with familiar folktale/fairytale characters.
We use original scripts of adapted tales that include audience interaction and our simple set can work anywhere.
Our usual charge is $75 an hour, but we will accept a contribution to FCCT, or work it out as an “in-kind” donation if you don’t have a budget at all.
Our 2012 – 2013 season brings “Goldy and the Three Bears” and “Little Red Riding Hood” to life!
Available from Sept to November and February to June!

FCCT traveling repertory troupe, the “Cartable Characters” is looking for a few good actors (or actor wanna bees!) We perform 2 or 3 short, fun, easy scripts per season with room for improv, have variable performance dates, and satisfaction guaranteed when you entertain groups of laughing children.
What’s the catch? You need to have a flexible work schedule that allows for performing these fun fairytales during the day at school assemblies, or early evenings for family nights at schools. Rehearsals are once a week on Tuesdays, as needed to prepare for an upcoming performance, with breaks built in to accommodate individual scheduling needs.
This would not be a year-round commitment. Seasonal guidelines are being established:
- Summer – Our “development” time to prepare 3 new stories for the next “season,” with potential performances at summer programs using already established stories and actors. Rehearsals will be set as needed to train new actors.
- Fall – Sept. 1 to Oct. 31, will be open to school performances and therefore weekly rehearsals will be needed to prepare and perform.
- Winter – Nov. 1 to Jan. 1 – break time for us since this is when the main stage production is in full swing, and the holidays are too busy. No performances or rehearsals during this time.
- Spring – Jan. to June 1 – Potentially our busiest time performing at schools.
When to jump in? No time like the present! Summer would be a great time to get in on the new season. Contact us on the “Contact Us” page of this website to find out more and start “acting-up!”
