CFRT Passport

Rick’s Place is honored to host CFRT’s Passport Series for Military Children.

The first class begins on September 28th, 2022. This series last for 8 weeks and classes will meet every Wednesday until November 16th. The time slots are as follows: 4:00pm-5:00pm for ages 7-10 years old, 5:15pm-6:45pm for ages 11-14 years old. 

The 7-10 year old class is full, there are 15 slots remaining in the 11-14 year old class.

CFRT’s “Passport Series” offers an introduction to playwriting and performance for children who desire a creative outlet. This Fall, CFRT is proud to host the Passport Series at different venues in the community including Rick’s Place, the Hope Mills Library, and on Fort Bragg. During the 8-week Series, students will learn how to create, write, and perform an original story while using their imagination and gaining self-confidence!

This project is supported by the Arts Council in part by contributions from businesses and individuals, and through grants from the City of Fayetteville, Cumberland County and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.

All ingredients needed for each recipe will be provided to each participant and be available for pick-up at RHF the day before each class. The only requirements for signing up are that you have kitchen basics (i.e. mixing bowls, kitchen knives, measuring cups, pots and pans) and a working stove top.

Classes are taught by a cooking instructor with the Poe Center. Every recipe is easy to moderate difficulty so young chefs can help in the kitchen, too!
