This summer marked a special moment in Frolick Theatre's existence as a self sustaining theatre company. Without grants, advertisement or other monetary support (other than that of its founding members), our entertainment was appreciated enough by diverse audiences to cover all expenses (including insurance, travel, food, costumes, props, technical equipment and permits). It certainly goes to show that when a group of dedicated individuals come together to work in a positive spirit of artistic creation that it creates abundance. We are very grateful for the opportunity to make a living and provide jobs to artists by presenting these stories to youngsters, and hope that we can forge a lasting relationship with young audiences and foster a love of theatre in today's youth.
Frolick will continue to develop puppet, stilt and masque plays for presentation and will take a brief pause from the hectic summer schedule to re-think, re-tool, and re-design our shows for touring. Watch for Frolick at the upcoming Fedora Upside Down Festival (FU2) on October 6th, as well as an appearance at the Far Enough Farm Fundraiser on September 22nd. Much love and Frolick for the end of summer!
