Join our creative chaos
Currently FTE is seeking young theatre enthusiasts for its Young Directors Program. For more information check out our Young Directors page. This year's young director will choose a short play from All in the Timing and bring it to life for our late summer production, wrapping up the 2014 season.
And join us for our first New Playwrights Workshop taking place 4-6pm, May 10 & 17 at Griffin Bookstore in downtown Fredericksburg. This free event features local playwright Doug Houge's new play, "Daughter of Job". Actors will present a staged reading of the play which will be followed by a critique session affording audience members an opportunity to give the playwright their input regarding the play. The goal is to help Doug take his show from"ugly baby" to stage ready. Hope to see you there.
We always need helping hands to run the front of the house, help with set construction, be part of the production crew, help spread the word about events and productions. To join our creative chaos send an e-mail to

Fredericksburg Theatre Ensemble took to the stage in the Spring of 2011 reveling in guilty laughs and celebrating the art of the uncomfortable through quality community theatre productions for Fredericksburg and surrounding communities. FTE kicked off its 2013-2014 season with "Seven Santas," before tackling Labute's "Reasons to be Pretty." The current production is a comedic look at the generation gap of the 1960s. "Halfway Up the Tree" opens May 23. That production will be followed by the collection of one-acts by Ives, "All in the Timing." Our young director program enters its second year with a young theatre person taking charge of one of the one acts in "All of the Timing." We've also kicked off our playwriting workshops having selected a play by an area playwrite and scheduled our first staged readings May 10 & May 17. In addition to these productions, FTE is well on its way to 501c3 non-profit status and continues to build relationships with venues in Fredericksburg in an effort to keep community theatre in the community. We are seeking our own rehearsal and performance space. Most importantly, we welcome everyone to join our creative chaos. Like us on Facebook and check back often to see what we're up to.
