Fort Lauderdale, FL – The 60th Season at Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theatre is in full swing! The latest production of “Annie, Jr.,” in December played to standing ovations and sold-out audiences at Dillard Center for the Arts. Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theatre next show is a teen production of Shakespeare’s classic, Hamlet, which will be performed in our new Black Box Theatre at the Galleria.
Hamlet plays first two weekends in March, 2012. Director, Sean Cutler, said “I am so excited about this production, it’s going to be an amazing show with an outstanding cast. Don’t miss it!” Seating is limited and this show is sure to sell out fast, so buy your tickets in advance on our website www.flct.org, or by calling 954 763-6701.
