FRANKLIN FOOTLIGHT THEATRE
Mission Statement- "Celebrating Talent, Empowering People, Inspiring Growth"
From the start it has been the theatre's business to entertain people ... it needs no other passport than fun.
BERTOLT BRECHT, A Short Organum for the Theatre
Due to COVID-19, 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.
On a more exciting note, we ARE doing a show! Just in a different and fun way! Read below for more details!
Everybody in the little town of Christmas is friendly and funny and you'll meet them all, including Skeezix and Sylvester, an elf comedy team that is short in stature and long in laughter; Dancer, the reindeer with a whacky sense of humor; Mrs. Claus, the REAL boss of the outfit; and a hilarious street corner Santa, tested and almost bested by one tough little kid with a sticky sucker. Also included are old favorite stories such as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" and "A Christmas Carol," updated and aimed right for the funny bone, of course. Throw in a wandering group of carolers who cough and sneeze on cue, three kids trying their best to be wise men in the Christmas play, and a riotous lecture on Christmas etiquette, and you're in for an evening of holiday laughter and warmth.12 small skits make up the Christmas comedy that is sure to bring in the spirit of Christmas.
This show will be rehearsed on stage and through virtual meetings. Then recorded and presented at the Franklin Opera House during the Festival of Trees. Franklin Footlight Theatre is looking outside the box to bring theater to the community. A theatrical movie!
