The 2014-2015 season is bringing exciting changes to FMT.
We have a new look (new logo) and new season ticket options (see the season ticket order form), but the same great mission:
"Top Quality Musical Theatre Entertainment that is always Guaranteed Safe for the Whole Family."
We are extremely excited to be bringing three incredible shows which are perfect for FMT.
- Fall 2014 will bring to life the classic Charles Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL with fantastic music by Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical) and Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Enchanted). We plan on a large multi-generational cast with marvelous production numbers of song and dance and touching moments to bring the true Christmas spirit to all.There are great opportunities for many of you to join us in this one onstage as well!
- Many of you got to see our acclaimed 2013 production of IN THE HEIGHTS and came to discover its fresh and unique mixture of hip hop, Latin, and rap music.With one of the most challenging and thrilling scores that I have EVER played, it shares the FMT message of the importance of community in a relevant manner. We really believe in the great message of the show and wanted to have another shot at it.
- FMT continues to bring you cutting edge "firsts" with another DFW premiere amateur production:THE PIRATE QUEEN. Schoenberg and Boublil, the acclaimed writers of LES MISERABLES, bring their special brand of strong, emotional ballads, and sweeping choruses with swash buckling and Celtic dance (ala Riverdance) to the story of the historical 16th century Irish chieftain and pirate Gráinne (Grace) O'Malley.A powerful woman, Grace commanded over 200 Irish brigands as one of the last Irish clan leaders to resist the Elizabethan English conquest of Gaelic Ireland.
