The Ferrisburgh Children’s Theater, in it’s 20th year, is a twenty week after-school program for Ferrisburgh students in fifth and sixth grades. The primary goal is to give young students a chance to experience the sense of self-confidence and joy that comes from working with a group of peers to put together a theatrical production. We also hope that each child develops a sense of their own unique talents and has the chance to shine.
The program includes playing drama games and learning some basic acting skills, as well as rehearsing the play and working on costuming, set design, and set construction. The program is a volunteer effort and is funded through ticket sales, donations, and grants from the FCS PTO, Neat Repeats in Middlebury, and Women of Wisdom in Vergennes.
