Performing is an integral part of the FSPA experience! Students apply skills learned in the classroom, find an exciting outlet for creative expression, and gain greater confidence onstage.
There are lots of opportunities to perform at FSPA! Highlighting an unparalleled calendar of music, dance and drama events, special opportunities for actors include an annual all-student play and musical. Chosen to provide fantastic casting opportunities for students of all ages and levels, any FSPA student who auditions will be cast in these shows! Recent productions have included Our Town, Metamorphoses, The Wizard of Oz and Grease! In addition, FSPA's affiliation with the Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) provides opportunities to be cast, by audition, in FPAC main stage productions, which include three plays and five musicals each season. Students also perform every summer in FPAC’s Whatever Theater Festival, which features evenings of one-act plays and a production of Shakespeare on Franklin Town Common.
Located just behind FSPA, THE BLACK BOX provides a professional setting to stage many FSPA performances. The flexible theater, with 360-degree catwalk and open floor plan, can be configured to suit the particular requirements and creative vision of different productions. FSPA students are fortunate to have THE BLACK BOX as a performing resource and for their arts learning and enjoyment!
