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

Rating: 5 stars  

I offer two viewpoints. I am proud to be an integral part of FLCT as a teacher and director for nearly 14 years, and I am forever thankful that my daughter went through FLCT's program from age 7 until college. She returns to FLCT whenever she can, and performs or works there when the opportunity arises. It is her second home.
In particular, FLCT's teens develop bonds as strong as any family connection. While some parents might be threatened by that, my experience is that positive peer pressure and exposure helps teens develop into their very best selves. As any parent of a teen knows, their peer group aids their identity.
FLCT provides all children the opportunity to become their most positive selves without fear of negative reaction or isolation.
It is my privilege to watch children grow into responsible, creative and caring adults as a direct result of FLCT's commitment to youth.

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

Both my personal satisfaction as an employee, and as a parent whose child has benefited from her amazing years of experience gained at Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre.

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

Find FLCT an endowment so that: - employees could be paid better salaries - FLCT's outreach programs could be implemented in schools, such as anti-bullying programs and literacy programs - FLCT could finally build and own its own theatre

Role:  Advisor & I learned that educating children is the most rewarding career for me.
