Since 1961, Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theater and Academy has been a leader in Arts Education in North Alabama. Students with access to arts education build self-confidence, express themselves better, learn how to work as part of a team, and are more likely to succeed academically and FPCTA believes that no child should be denied access to quality arts education. This beloved organization is currently celebrating their 60th season and, although the pandemic has slowed down much of the performing arts activity around the world, FPCTA has high hopes for a triumphant return to the stage with the help and support of the community. AS part of their 60th season celebration they have also just announced a «Spotlight on the Future» capital campaign to build a new home.

The cast and crew worked tirelessly to maintain social distance, but also create this incredible production that we can’t wait for you to see!» – Megan Carter, Advancement Director
