Schoolhouse Players

Schoolhouse Players is FLT's educational theatre program with shows performed by adults for children.  Students come to the Theatre as part of a field trip from their various schools.

FLT is happy to bring the magic of live theatre into the lives of thousands of children each year, hoping to enrich their futures by giving them an appreciation of the arts. Since its inception twelve years ago, over 90,000 children have seen the plays offered by FLT’s Children’s Theatre. FLT is proud to play such an important role in the education of today’s youth.

Study guides are available for each production shortly before each show and are emailed to the teachers. The study guide is designed to enhance enjoyment and understanding of each play. They include a description of the play, theatre etiquette, theatre terms, history, vocabulary, things to do, things to think about and activities to explore after seeing the performance. Great for teachers and parents!

Tickets are $5 per person (everyone must have a ticket/seat).

IMPORTANT: We require a non-refundable deposit of 50 percent of your estimated total to hold your reservation. Your deposit is due shortly after your reservation is made. Failure to submit your deposit will result in cancellation of your reservation. Your balance is due the day of the show with your actual attendance numbers.

Florence Little Theatre doesn’t issue deposit refunds if your school fails to attend your scheduled performance for any reason.

Refunds will be issued only if:

*A state of emergency has been declared

*FLT suffers a loss of power

*Your school district has canceled school due to cold/weather


If FLT cancels a school performance, the theatre’s leadership will make that decision by 7 a.m. The administrative staff will make every effort to inform the group leader at the email address and phone number provided in your original reservation request.

To make reservations for your group, please contact the Florence Little Theatre office at (843) 662-3731 ext. 2 or email Jessica.
