FSPA will hold Open House: July 11 and July 28

Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) will hold Open Houses for prospective students and families on Monday, July 11 and Thursday, July 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 38 Main Street in downtown Franklin. The community is invited to tour the facilities, 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.

Founded in 1985 by Director Raye Lynn Mercer, FSPA has been dedicated to the enjoyment of the arts for all ages and to the artistic growth and development of young people. The school offers an extensive roster of classes in all dance disciplines, acting, musical theater, voice, and instrumental instruction, whether for recreational enjoyment or serious study. FSPA is also home to the Little Music School, an innovative program that teaches children as young as 18 months to play the piano. 

Performance is an integral part of an FSPA education and the school offers a year-round calendar of opportunities, including musicals, plays, voice and instrumental recitals, opera scenes, acoustic coffee houses, musical theater showcases, summer theater, ballet and dance company performances, and the school’s signature Spring Concert. THE BLACK BOX, the home of the Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC), is located just behind the school and provides a professional venue for FSPA student productions. Many FSPA students also participate, by audition, in FPAC’s annual season of shows.

Registration for summer and fall sessions is ongoing. Beginners are welcome and encouraged. For more information, including summer brochure or fall class schedule and catalogue, call (508) 528-8668 or visit online at
