As rehearsals reach a high point it’s time to plan your ticket buying for Pippin.

Remember, each and every one of FCT’s last 37 performances has sold out and this show is yet another cracker. We’ve already sold well over 1/3rd of our tickets directly through cast members, but you can get yours direct from The Fringe Office (or their website) it’s a really slick site so don’t be alarmed.

Alternatively you can wait until July 3rd when our Ticket Hotline opens.  The number of that is shown in the poster above.

Expect a dramatic new stage setting for this show.  It really will blow you away.

Many of our patrons enjoy seeing our shows twice (and at the start of our ten show run and once at the end) to see how the show develops (just saying) but you’ll need to be quick to get late run tickets, they’re always the first to go.

Pippin is another fine Stephen Schwartz play (Godspell, Working and Wicked are all his shows) so you can be sure of good tunes and with Hayley Scott directing, Gus Harrower MDing and Natasha Rose choreographing you’ll have three FCT alumni making magical music all week long. (And Claire Stewart is never far away, acting as their mentor.)

Next up… Pippin.

Steven Schwartz’s (Godspell, Wicked) Tony Award winning  latest offering , the 33rd longest musical in Broadway history no less, is our Fringe 2017 offering.

It’s a first for FCT, indeed may be a first production in Scotland, and is directed by Hayley Scott, our MD is, once again, Gus Harrower and Choreography is by Natasha Rose.  It’s something of an FCT dream team.

First up though, we have the matter of auditions…

This is our Fringe sales printout.

The Fringe has 45 Tickets per night and as you can see three are completely sold out and one night has a single ticket left.  Our opening night or the Monday night is looking your best bet at this stage.  But you can try the FCT Hotline as a few tickets may remain.

We’ve sold nearly 1,500 of our 1,800 tickets and there’s over a month till opening night so expect ten sell outs.

Thank you to all of our extremely generous show sponsors (all shows are taken) and to our generous band of advertisers.

Rehearsals have been incredible.  Spine tingling and the music and movement both defy description.  Surely one of FCTs all time highlights.
