Fair Oaks Theatre Festival
Fair Oaks Theatre Festival is an All-Volunteer Community Non-Profit
FOTF represents the finest aspects of true community theatre: Affordable Quality Entertainment
FAIR OAKS THEATRE FESTIVAL was founded in 1983 by a group of local business and community leaders that recognized the value of the little-used Veterans Memorial Amphitheater. It became a public benefit corporation in 1984.
FOTF has since become a yearly tradition serving the community's need for affordable cultural activities in the northeast region of Sacramento County. The Festival provides reduced rate tickets for children, students, and seniors. The outdoor atmosphere provides play-goers with a comfortable, casual, and safe setting.
August 1983 FOTF produced its first play, Merry Wives of Windsor. Through the years our annual summer productions included Shakespeare's comedies, Gilbert and Sullivan, and a variety of Broadway Musicals.
Through the years FOTF has also written produced several original shows.
Great Songs Of The Sky by Lucy D'Mot
The Jazzbirds by Robert Irvin
She Stoops to Conquer: a musical adaptation by Kate Styrsky
Most recently FOTF has been proud to produce SHREW!
Conceived and written by Jennifer Longo and Robert Irvin and Directed by Beth Duggan, SHREW! is a 1930's musical romp through Shakespeare's 'Taming of the Shrew' featuring tunes from Cole Porter and Noel Coward
