Texas Family Theater (TFT) provides opportunities for children of all ages to participate in live theater productions appropriate for the whole family. TFT provides an environment for families to see shows together. During the summer we offer a Theater Academy for kids which takes place in an atmosphere that is safe and fun to learn in. All productions and classes are directed or taught by theater professionals. The Academy introduces various opportunities of the theater such as performance, singing, dancing, set design as well as light and sound techniques.
