In what might be the biggest production ever brought to the stage by FMCT, Mary Poppins is a wonderfully done show that is fun for the whole family. With almost 60 members in the cast & crew plus another dozen in the pit orchestra this was no small undertaking but director Adam Pankow knocks another one out of the park.BWW Review: NEWSIES at West Fargo Summer Arts Intensive July 30, 2018

The Fargo Moorhead Community Theatre's production of Calendar Girls is such a delight. The play is based on the movie, which in turn was based on true events. I do have to say that I never saw the movie, so I went in with no comparison whatsoever.BWW Review: THE LITTLE MERMAID at Horizon Middle School March 4, 2018
Director & Scenic Designer Scott M Brusven and his massive team of cast, crew & volunteers brought the city of Paris and the Notre Dame Cathedral to life. This small private school (enrollment just over 500 k-12) built a massive set for their production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. With a on stage cast of 63, a production team of 21, music provided by the Fargo Moorhead Symphony Orchestra (recorded live), and the 33 member Master Chorale of Fargo Moorhead & Community Choir members joining the production on stage this production was no small undertaking. I am betting Mr Brusven lives by the philosophy 'Go Big or Go Home'.BWW Review: TITANIC THE MUSIC at West Fargo Sheyenne High February 12, 2018
