Children’s Theatre receives grants


Fort Stockton Community Theatre says a big thank you to Independent Agent Phil Chamberlain for being a positive force for change in Fort Stockton.  

Chamberlain enabled the theatre to receive an Allstate Foundation Helping Hands grant to support the Children’s Theatre program.  Chamberlain has volunteered hours through the years to support all phases of FSCT.  He has been involved since the beginning and has entertained audiences in numerous productions.  Especially appreciate is his help to #BringOutTheGood in the community by encouraging young people to make theatre a part of their lives.

The Fort Stockton Wal-mart Supercenter’s manager, Richard Myers, also made it possible for the Children’s Theatre Program to receive a Wal-mart Community grant.  

Thanks to these generous grants, scripts and royalties have been paid for the Children’s Theatre production of “Alice in Wonderland,” written by Michele L. Vacca and directed by Susann Hall.  Set construction material, costumes, and make-up will also be purchased with the grant funds.

“Alice in Wonderland” stars twenty-seven young people and will be presented Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Dec. 7, 8, 9, and 10 at The Nelson Street Theatre, 102 S. Nelson.  Watch for specific times and ticket prices, but mark your calendar to attend and support FSCT’s young people.

Thank you Allstate and Wal-mart, for being a part of Fort Stockton Community Theatre.
