About Us

Tokyo Theatre for Children is a volunteer theatre group of adults dedicated to bringing quality English language theatre to the young and the young at heart in Tokyo. Started by three international school mothers, the first show was Hansel and Gretel in 1974. TTFC has been bringing the magical world of musical theatre to kids, young and old, for 40 years.

TTFC is run completely by volunteers who donate countless hours and energy to pursue that same vision, and range from professional actors to trailing spouses and we always welcome volunteers. TTFC continues to perform fun musical plays aimed at children but enjoyed by many age groups and varying English language levels. Past productions include the Wizard of OZ, The Little Mermaid, Treasure Island, Red Riding Hood, Peter Rabbit, The Wind in the Willows, The Little Mermaid, The Jungle Book and The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales. All presented with our own humorous twist.

東京シアターフォーチルドレン( 以下TTFC )は、子供達と若者の心を持っている大人に質の高い英語劇を提供するために創設されたボランティア劇団です。40年近く前に始まりました。その頃の日本には海外から来た子供達が英語劇を観る機会はほとんどありませんでした。そのためインターナショナルスクールに子供を通わせている3人の母親が、子供達に生の演劇に触れる素晴らしさを教えてあげたいと切望したのがきっかけとなり、その思いに賛同した者が集まり、この劇団を発足させました。
