We are excited to announce that Fairytale Physical Therapy (FTPT) has reached the West coast! On September 22, 2017 the newest branch of FTPT created some winter magic in sunny California!

Cal State University - Long Beach brought Anna, Elsa and Olaf to life with “The Frozen Show” at Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach. In coordination with the FTPT team from CUMC, students in Califormia adapted “The Frozen Show” to suit the needs and audience of children in their area. The cast included Rachel Thomson as Anna, Reilly Retz as Elsa, Bradley Tirador as Olaf, Janelle Mangahas as the Narrator and Sara Leontis on technical support. The FTPT - Long Beach team is looking forward to bringing another show to the California kids in the spring!

We are so proud of and excited about new branches of Fairytale Physical Therapy! Cal State University – Long Beach is just the beginning. We look forward to letting you know about more magic coming soon!

Fairytale Physical Therapy (FTPT) is a student project of the Columbia University Program in Physical Therapy. FTPT's shows, performed in hospitals, give children a chance to get moving and offer both parents and children a break from being in the hospital.
