Show Update

We are saddened to announce that due to COVID-19, we have decided to cancel our production of THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE. This is not a decision our production team made lightly, and we want to thank them, our actors and stage technicians for their patience and diligence in trying to find a solution to performing in some capacity. Ticket holders have been contacted by the Franklin Opera House in regards to refunds. If you have not been reached, please contact Dan Darling at the Opera House.


Additionally, we have decided to postpone our planned summer and winter 2020 productions of DISASTER! and Elf the Musical until next year. While this is not the hoped for outcome, we recognize that public safety comes first for both our on and off stage talent, as well as our faithful audiences. Please stay tuned to our website and our social media channels for future updates.
