How It Started...

To Sum Up…

A little girl, raised by two performers to LOVE the stage grows up to create her own theatre company. 

The Details…

When Stevie Dawn Carter was a young girl, her world was filled with music, dance, stages, and curtain calls. However, over the years that place of wonder and amazement got further away because…well, adulthood. #adultingishard

During the chaos of 2020, Stevie Dawn took the time to reflect on what truly brings her joy and what she wants to spend her time doing and the message that came back was loud and clear…Community Theatre. After volunteering for a variety of different local companies, she started thinking about the shows she would like to see be brought to the community. Ones that were uplifting, relevant, and fun!

Our Mission

The mission of the The Fleetwood Project Inc. is to promote amateur theatrical productions and drama education in Mansfield, Texas.

How It's Going...

Partnering with her husband, Matt Carter (who loves musical theatre), the idea of The Fleetwood Project Inc. was born. The paperwork was filed and local artists were contacted to see if they would be willing to take a chance on a new company with a new vision for theatre in Mansfield. Which left us with the big decision…What will be our first show?

Tick, Tick…BOOM! is a story about following your dreams, never giving up, and not allowing age to be a deterrent. Stevie Dawn felt compelled that this show was aligned with her own journey. Circling back to a love and dream from childhood. To have a community theatre to call home.

And so…the journey begins…
