Franklin School For The Performing Arts Slates Summer Open Houses

The Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) will hold summer Open Houses for prospective students and families from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15 and Thursday, July 30 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 in music, dance, and drama. Prospective students are also encouraged to try a complimentary class during the summer session, which runs through August 21.

Celebrating a milestone 30th anniversary season, FSPA has been dedicated to the enjoyment of the arts for all ages and to the artistic growth and development of young people. Founded in 1985 by Director Raye Lynn Mercer and built upon the notion that arts experiences are an integral part of a well-rounded education, FSPA offers an extensive roster of classes for all ages and levels, whether for recreational enjoyment or serious study. 
Programs are provided in all dance disciplines, acting, musical theater, voice, and instrumental instruction. FSPA is also the home of the Little Music School, an innovative program teaching children as young as 18 months to play the piano. 
An unparalleled calendar of performing opportunities features all-student musicals, plays, voice and instrumental recitals, opera scenes, acoustic coffee houses, musical theater showcases, Glee Club, performing troupes, dance companies, a classical ballet variations ensemble, and instrumental ensembles. Many FSPA students also participate, by audition, in the affiliated Franklin Performing Arts Company’s annual season of shows. 
Summer programming features week-long performing arts camps, 3-day workshops, two 3- and 4-week ballet intensives, and an 8-week session of dance, voice and instrumental private lessons and classes. An all-new FSPA Summer Theater program provides opportunities for hands-on immersion in a cabaret show, concert musical (Schoolhouse Rock!), behind-the-scenes theater design, straight play or musical theater production (High School Musical). Registration for summer and fall sessions is ongoing.
