Performances October 8 – December 5

The Play that Sets the Example

Begin the series with the world’s favorite little wooden boy and watch him come to life like never before! This new, highly theatrical adaptation tells the story of the misbehaving puppet who dreams of becoming a real boy. Will Pinocchio be able to overcome his own naughtiness, resist temptation, and make his dream come true?  Find out in this imaginative retelling of the classic tale that teaches valuable lessons about love, family, and what it means to be human.

The Playmakers Tour: Write It Out!

Performances through February at YOUR school!

The Play that Inspires Writing

Take the next step in the series with a play that will inspire your students to write plays of their own!  In this interactive theatrical experience, your students will learn the ingredients of a play and see a brand new play created with their ideas right before their eyes. More than just a performance, this show comes with up to eight in-class workshops to get your students writing. All students are encouraged to submit their plays to FST’s 2020 Young Playwrights Festival to be considered for a professional production in the spring.
