FPAC announces new venue

The Franklin Performing Arts Company will open a roughly 250-seat theater at 15 West Central St. in the spring, providing a venue to host its productions, from musicals to well-known plays, and contributing to the growth of the town’s burgeoning arts community. 
And the theater, to be named "THE BLACK BOX," will play an important role in the ongoing effort to revitalize the downtown, the company’s executive director, Raye Lynn Mercer, said Thursday. 
"Our hopes are that we can provide many new opportunities for performers and not only produce our own shows, but also present music on a regular basis along with all types of live entertainment," Mercer said. "And with a vibrant calendar of events, we hope that both our theater and our organization will be an economic driver for downtown Franklin."
