The Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) will hold an Open House for prospective students and families on Wednesday, April 30 from 4-8 p.m. at 38 Main Street in downtown Franklin. The community is invited to tour the facilities, observe classes and rehearsals, speak with faculty and staff, and learn more about FSPA programs for all ages and abilities in music, dance, and drama, whether for recreational enjoyment or serious study. Prospective students are also encouraged to try a complimentary class.
Since 1985, FSPA has been dedicated to the enjoyment of the arts for all ages and to the artistic growth and development of young people. Founded by Director Raye Lynn Mercer and built upon the notion that arts experiences are an integral part of a well-rounded education, FSPA provides a nurturing environment where students grow skills for the stage – and for life.
Bringing the performing arts disciplines together under one roof, FSPA offers an extensive roster of classes in all dance disciplines, acting, musical theater, voice and instrumental instruction. An unparalleled calendar of performing opportunities features studio voice recitals, opera scenes, acoustic coffee houses, Glee Club, musical theater troupes, dance companies, Ballet Repertoire Series, chamber music, jazz and percussion ensembles. Many FSPA students also participate in the affiliated Franklin Performing Arts Company’s annual season of shows.
FSPA classes for the school year continue through June 23 and registration for upcoming summer and fall sessions is ongoing. For more information or to request a course catalog, call (508) 528-8668. Visit online at www.fspaonline.com.
