Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) - Open House
The Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) will hold summer Open Houses for prospective students and families on Tuesday, August 11 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., on Wednesday, August 26 from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., and on Saturday, August 29 from 10 a.m. – 2 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 in music, dance, and drama, whether for recreational enjoyment or serious study. 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 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, 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.
Fall registration is ongoing. For more information, including class schedule and catalogue, call (508) 528-8668 or visit online at www.FSPAonline.com.
