They will open next year with an "A Company of Friends" presentation of "The Jungle Book" in September. This show will have several weekday performances so local schools can attend. If you would like more information on school performances please contact FCFT at 770-599-0051.
Next will be the touching original holiday delight "A Christmas Carol" in November and December. Performers from 8 years to adults are needed to bring this yuletide favorite to the stage. This is definitely a show for the entire family.
The February offering is a very exciting one. They will present their first ever Broadway Musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Joseph and the Amazing Techincolor Dreamcoat." This show will be a challenging undertaking and requires a large cast of adults and teens, plus a big children's chorus. Ages 6 to adults will be cast in this production that promises to be fabulous.
