Review for FORT LAUDERDALE CHILDREN'S THEATRE , Ft Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

FLCT is a wonderful place for children, and would take my future children here. There is a slight problem with FLCT however. FLCT has a lot of favoritism going on. It hurts many people's feelings because it doesn't give children equal opportunity to get certain parts. As a children's theater and not a professional theater they should give different kids a chance to prove themselves. This however is lacking. Many people agree with me and are afraid to speak out about it because they don't want to affect anyone's views on their kids. FLCT is a non for profit, yet in order to get the money they need they tend to give leads to the richer kids or kids in which there parents are on the board.They do give scholarships, but those kids seem to be left in the background sometimes, I could name a few examples. How do you think deep down this affects some of the other kids? Kids care deeply about the children's theater and go for years on end without every getting their chance to shine. We need to start switching it up a bit, and maybe some kids would grow even more on stage..and off.
