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 can be 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!

The Schoolhouse Players’ shows (The Gingerbread Man, Little Red Hen, and The Tortoise and the Hare) are presented for schools on the Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of the run of the show at 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM. All tickets are $5.00. Everyone attending, including teachers, chaperones, parents, and bus drivers, must be included in the total.

Reservations begin on September 9 at noon. 
Reservations for school groups may be made by phone 843.662.3731 or by email emily@florencelittletheatre.org

An estimated number of seats may be reserved until the final ticket count deadline. The final total number attending must be confirmed two weeks prior to the show. Once the final count is confirmed, no seats may be canceled. Payment is to be made on the day of the performance for the number confirmed. All sales are final. Checks should be made payable to Florence Little Theatre.

As seating is limited, attendees will be counted and directed to seats by ushers. Students may use the restroom before being seated.

We require that students be adequately supervised. A teacher or chaperone must remain with his/her students at all times.

Schools are responsible for any damages incurred by their students or chaperones. 

In the event of inclement weather, it may be necessary to cancel shows. Every effort will be made to notify schools in advance at the email address and phone number provided in your original reservation request. Shows will be rescheduled if possible. FLT reserves the right to cancel any reservation/show for any reason.
