About FTC

Front Row Theatre Company (FTC) is a student-organized theatre company at the University of Pennsylvania that calls attention to cultural, political, and societal issues important to its membership and its greater communities. As such, FTC is dedicated to connecting its membership to community involvement and service opportunities in conjunction with each production.

As a member of the Theatre Arts Council (TAC-e), the Executive Board and members work within a vibrant community of artists and performers committed to putting on high quality shows with a purpose.

We produce four student-directed shows each academic year: NSO, Fall, Winter, and Spring. Directors and shows are chosen by our Executive Board.

Since 2003, Front Row has been Harrison College House‘s in-house theatre company. We stage two of our annual performances in the Harrison Rooftop Lounge, an incredibly intimate space that gives FTC the freedom to explore different types of theatre experiences. We also help run a residential program that lets FTC members live in Harrison, creating a true community.
