Fantasy Theatre for Children

Fantasy Theatre for Children was both a children's theatre production company and a theatre school in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Founded in 1981 by Artistic Director Tony Frost, FTC operated as Winnipeg's oldest children's theatre for 30 seasons, until 2011.

This website remains online in memory of Fantasy's history of shows and enormous contribution to local community theatre, while the theatre school has since become part of Merlyn Productions.

FTC operated 12 months each year, presenting shows that appealed to young and old alike. It remains famous for classic stories and fairy tales such as “Beauty & The Beast”, “Cinderella”, and “Charlotte's Web”.

Fantasy Theatre for Children was one of the few theatres giving local talent a place to develop and apply their skills with practical application in all areas of the theatre.

Our Volunteers

The cast of Beauty and The Beast (FTC 2001)

Each season, Fantasy Theatre for Children enjoyed a cast of volunteers from all walks of life, crossing boundaries of race, creed and colour.

This was the backbone of the organisation both onstage and off, and we are very grateful to these fine people for their dedication and undying support.
