Are you wondering what has been going on in the old office furniture building across from Rick's?  Well, there is a big white tent up now and the celebration is about to begin.  THE BLACK BOX is finally here - a performing and entertaining space for all!  Franklin Performing Arts Company (non-profit) has a new home.  This flexible and very cool space will be buzzing throughout the year with something for everyone - from performances to big band Sundays to small recitals to anything that you can think of - the space can be transformed into anything.
