MFH is a support group for parents of homeschooled children in Central Florida. We accept all residents who currently homeschool, or are considering homeschooling, regardless of religious persuasion or beliefs. 

Are you unschooling in the Orlando area?? A relaxed homeschooler? If so, then this is the group for you!! :) While we do offer an online support group, we will be offering REAL LIFE events so our children will have the opportunity to make friends within the group.

This is a secular homeschool support group for families with liberal political values; we believe in equality for all, regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation. If you have had difficulty finding a homeschool support group that would accept you the way you are because you can't honestly comply with their "statement of faith" requirements, we can offer your children the opportunities to fulfill their social needs in a diverse group that accepts them as they are. 

Phoenix Tears productions is one of the shining pillars in interactive theatre. Every month they perform a series of short plays written by local writers and cast from local actors and directors. These shows usually only last a couple minutes, but every show has multiple performances, sometimes with a special local musician to spice things up.

Alongside this, they perform interactive, audience participation plays, where the audience quite literally becomes a part of the production. An audience member may walk directly up to an actor and ask them questions, and they will find out new information that nobody else knows. Every one of their interactive shows features a main character who is murdered, then the audience has to decide who did it.
