Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre, founded in 1952, was the first documented children's theatre in the state of Florida.  It remains one of the very few theatres whose performances use students as actors, assistant directors, backstage crew and technicians.  The theatre offers classes, productions, and community outreach programs for young people ages 3 - 18.  FLCT continues to provide the community and visitors to the area a source of enrichment and enjoyment in the cultural arts and to provide opportunities for young people to participate in classes, productions and creative dramatics exercises, regardless of economic, cultural, or ethnic backgrounds.
