FST’s Children’s Theatre Program is a two-pronged program, designed to reach families at the theatre as well as youth in the classroom.
Launched in 2016, FST's on-site weekend Children's Theatre series is designed for children and families to explore the world of theatre arts. Audiences have the opportunity to ask questions about the show - How did it make them feel? What did they see? - all while spending quality time with family for less than the cost of attending a movie.
FST’s award-winning WRITE A PLAY program is a year-round arts-in-education initiative, providing students with the example, the inspiration, and the skills to write their own original plays. Plays generated through the program are then invited to be submitted to FST’s annual Young Playwrights Festival playwriting competition. Winning plays are selected to be mounted in a professional production and brought to life by FST actors. Since its inception in 1991, WRITE A PLAY has impacted over one million children throughout the state of Florida and as far as Scotland and Israel.
