As a board member and Vice-Chair for 3 years, FLCT has provided me the opportunity to assist in it's future growth. Having heard wonderful things about a children's theatre 6 years ago, I enrolled my son in one of their acting classes. Since then he has been in 15 productions and has grown into an amazing talented, confident 13 year old. Seeing my son's growth was the reason I became involved. I want to be involved to make the organization grow even stronger and more successful. Fundraising, stronger classes and increased enrollment are items I see opportunites with.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Having the opportunity of FLCT producing a 45 minute drama, singing and dancing production for my son's Bar Mitzvah. My son made FLCT his mitzvah project and raised thousands of dollars.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Improve fundraising efforts, classes and branding.

I have been a student at FLCT for almost 6 years. It is one big family and like a 2nd home for most students. It such a loving, caring, and amazing environment. The teachers and students are friends who you will have forever. I joined FLCT when I first moved to Florida, it was the first thing to make me smile in a long time. All the students are great friends and no matter who you are, you will always fit in. FLCT is filled with the most loving group of people ou will ever find anywhere. The older kids act a mentors for the younger students. Whether you are cast, crew, or any part of a production this group will make you feel safe and at home. Everyone there always has your back and is the best support system you can find anywhere. No matter what life hits us with, your FLCT family will always get you through.
Not only has FLCT taught me so much about theater, but it has taught me how to be a good person. It has given me the confidence to do things I never dreamed of doing. FLCT is the best thing that happened to me in a long time.

This organization does an amazing job of motivating young people to interact as part of a group in a positive, confidence inspiring manner. The kids really get into their acting. They sing and say lines, all from memory. Their performances will blow you away! In addition to the obvious educational benefit to the children, it is clear that their hard work in preparing for performances keeps them busy and out of trouble.

Fort Lauderdale Childrens Theatre is honestly the best theatre i've had the pleasure of working with and watching perform. I only took a couple classes there but they welcomed me with open arms and I quickly became apart of the FLCT family. The instructors are great and everyone gets along. Its a great place for children to make friends and builds so many skills necessary for life. Theatre has impacted my life so much and I believe its important for everyone to get that experience.
Beside taking classes, the performances that the Fort Lauderdale Childrens Theatre put together are fantastic! Anything with the FLCT tag is going to be a great show, hands down. I definitely love this place and recommend taking a class, or sending your kids to take classes, or see there shows. You will not regret it.

Fort Lauderdale Childrens Theatre has helped me grow so much, not only as a performer, but as a person.
When I first started go to FLCT, I felt as if I was already included into the family. That's what FLCT is, a family. ALL of the kids and also the instructors get along so well it's crazy. We
all love each other and support all the decisions and struggles we go through in our lives.
Whether you are a lead in a big production number or a member of the ensemble, they always make sure and you always feel like you have one of the most important roles. FLCT has helped me grow and figure out my strong points and talents and also help me work on my weaker points. It also has helped me to be more outgoing and outside-the-box when interacting with others.
What I also really like is the intimacy and range of all the students. There are children younger than six all the way up to seniors in high school. It has a sense of one-ness that I can't find at any other performing arts theatres.
You always are finding yourself trying to be involved as much as possible there because the environment is so warm and inviting. It is like a utopian bubble that we all want to be apart of.

I am PROUD to say that I am a student at FLCT.

Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre is more than an after school activity to me, its home. A home should be a place in which people are welcome to be who they truly are. Compared to my school enviorment where kids are afraid to express their feelings and focusing time and energy on fitting into the role of the cookie-cutter popular kid, FLCT is a place where everyone has to ability to be free. No one cares what you look like, or if you act crazy, they just care if you are enjoying yourself. In my past 10 years at Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre I have found it hard not to enjoy myself. The enviorment at Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre is therapudic. Even if I was having the worst day, everyone could cheer me up. Everyone here is so determined and hard working, it is great to be surrounded by people who are so passionate about something.

At my school I have always been considered odd. So, in the past year, I just stopped really talking. I kept myself from expressing how I feel when conversing with others. Instead of being my crazy self, I was forced into this bland person. All of the boys and girls are all so similar. Their personalities: dry/hurtful humor, not getting too excited about anything. Their looks: boys- hair perfectly buzzed, gym shorts, black Nikes. girls- shoulder length straight hair. If the hair is brown it should have artificial light highlights, if it is blonde it should have darker strands dyed in. Everyone was just the same person. If one person said "I like pepperoni pizza" everyone likes pepperoni pizza. Thats what attracts me and so many others to FLCT everyone is different. But, everyone's differences make each person unique and special.

FLCT is an escape in which children of practically any age are able to free themselves from the dull robots from school, and be the person in which they yearn to be.

I have been attending th Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre since the summer of 2006. I can honestly say that these past few years wouldn't have been as put together if I wasn't in the company of my FLCT family. By family, I mean it in the best sense possible. It truly is like a family at FLCT. Everyone loves everyone.. even when they're mad at each other. FLCT has shaped me into the young woman that I am. Without it I wouldn't be as outgoing, I wouldn't have memories to last a lifetime, and my family would be limited to those in my household. FLCT is a truly amazing organization and I wouldn't know what to do with myself if it were to ever go away. FLCT incorporates singing, acting, dancing, you name it, into an amazing production with elaborate costumes and sets. Along with the family aspect, you also have to professional air. FLCT is life-changing and I will never be the same.

I've been attending FLCT's productions for the past two years. There's such a treasure of talent in my own back yard that I had never known about. I can hardly wait for next play, then the next, etc. There's no way to describe the love and passion for acting that these children share with their audience. Janet has a special connection with each and every one of her students and staff. Please attend at least one of their plays and get ready to be blown away. You'll be back for more.

FLCT has become possibly one of the biggest factors that shaped me into who I am today.

I've been going for three years now, and I have completely evolved in my acting, the way i see myself, my confidence, and the people I surround myself with. I used to be extremely shy when it came to
performing, but with all the help and comfort that FLCT supplied me, I grew out of it.

The kids and staff that go to FLCT are some of the sweetest, most accepting, genuine people i've ever met. We all have problems and things going on in our outside lives, but it doesn't seem to matter when we get into the FLCT environment.

I've been pretty busy with school things lately to be as involved with FLCT as much as I wish I was, but still i come to see all the shows and go to the events they hold. There is always a way for FLCT to draw me back.

Not only that, but the shows are phenomenal for such a young age (Ex. A Midsummer Nights Dream).
