About Footliters Traveling Playhouse:
Footliters Traveling Playhouse is a new touring program of Young Footliters Youth Theatre. Together with master teaching artists, we're creating engaging theatre experiences for students across Iowa. Our week-long camps are open to students of all backgrounds, experience levels, and training.
Footliters Traveling Playhouse is committed to "engaging and empowering students through an immersive, inclusive theatre experience." We put our students first and collaborate with parents and communities to make our theatre a safe and exciting space for all.
About The Vanishing of the Jolly Roger
Designed for students at all levels of theatre experience, campers will audition, rehearse, and perform a musical alongside three professional teaching artists...in one week! The Vanishing of the Jolly Roger is a brand new production with a script by Katie Colletta and original music by Jason Sifford.
The Adventure of a Lifetime
Anchors aweigh! When the Jolly Roger vanished into the Bermuda Triangle three hundred years ago, the world thought it was gone for good… until now. Join this swashbuckling pirate crew on an island adventure as they learn what is possible when we work together!
A Performance for Your Community
The Vanishing of the Jolly Roger culminates in a public performance of our one-act musical for
members of your community. We'll prepare the kids — we'll even bring the costumes, sets, and songs!
The Footliters Traveling Playhouse Experience
We believe theatre is for everyone. Each student receives a role, a costume, and the support they
need to shine in this performance. Our team has decades of experience creating welcoming,
engaging children's theatre programs.
From the first rehearsal to the final curtain, we believe theatre should be educational. We'll be
teaching every student skills like projection, improvisation, creative problem solving, and how to work together to tell a story. We'll also be learning about the Alps, and exploring some of the most fascinating (and daring!) corners of the mountain ecosystem!
