strange stories for imaginative humans

The Fox & Beggar Theater tells stories about imaginary gardens with real toads in them. Productions explore the spaces between street theatre, dance, circus arts and acrobatics, mask-and-puppet theatre, musicals, and illustration. The FBT currently and happily resides at the Lookout Arts Quarry outside Bellingham, Washington and is a sponsored project of Allied Arts of Whatcom County. 

Founded in 2013 by Artistic Director Nat Allister, the FBT has performed on the East Coast at the Montford Park Amphitheater, The Orange Peel, The Diana Wortham Theatre, The UNSCA Stevens Center, The Bardo Performing Arts Center, 7 Stages Theatre, The Peace Center, The Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, as well as at LEAF Community Arts and Gratifly Music and Arts Festival. The FBT has performed on the West Coast at Oregon Eclipse Festival, Portland’s Alberta Abbey, and of course, at the Lookout Arts Quarry.

Our mission is to bring  provocative, innovative,  and enchanting storytelling to a troubled world, through a broad fusion of both performing and visual arts.
