About: Under the egis of the Chautauqua Festival Committee, The Florida Chautauqua Children’s Theater first came into being in the fall of 1989. Over ninety children, ages five to twenty, enrolled in this theater group with approximately 85 children being involved with the group’s premier production of “The Wizard of Oz” in March of 1990. The children performed to standing room only crowds and received standing ovations for their efforts during Oz’s’ three day run. The Children’s Theater was the dream of local author and director, Adair Wiess. After its original production, the theater continued averaging two productions each year. Children from all areas of Walton County have performed and enjoyed the magic of live theater. The Children’s Theater continues productions as well as workshop experiences that enable students to improve upon their vocal skills and stage presence. The Florida Chautauqua Children’s Theater is a vital part of the community of Walton County. Auditions for upcoming plays are advertised through the local media and are open to all children, grades Kindergarten through College.
