Review for Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre, Ft Lauderdale, FL, USA
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.
