FPAC Announces Open Auditions for Original Holiday Musicals

Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) will hold open auditions for the original FPAC musical ’Tis the Season! and a new FPAC holiday panto. Auditions for both shows will take place on Saturday, October 7 at THE BLACK BOX, FPAC’s home and performance venue located at 15 West Central Street in downtown Franklin. 

Auditions are scheduled at 1 p.m. for ages 6-8, 1:30 for ages 9 and 10, 2:00 for ages 11 and 12, 2:30 for teens, and 3:30 for adults. Those unable to attend on the 7th are encouraged to audition on Wednesday, October 4 at 7 p.m. Students must be 6 years of age or older on the audition date to participate. Beginners and all levels are welcome. Please prepare 16 measures of a musical theater or pop song and bring sheet music, as an accompanist will be provided. A simple dance combination will be taught at the audition.

’Tis the Season! is an original large cast musical first presented by FPAC in 1995. The upbeat, jazzy holiday extravaganza features members of the Kenny Hadley Big Band and contemporary arrangements of favorite holiday classics in musical styles including R&B, jazz, rock, Motown, gospel, and Broadway. FPAC will present ’Tis the Season! on December 9 and 10 at Franklin High School auditorium. 

FPAC’s third original American panto follows in the British tradition, retelling a well-known fairy tale in an exaggerated style filled with audience participation, popular songs, slapstick comedy, jokes, dances, and more. The production will be staged at THE BLACK BOX on December 22 and 23. The FPAC holiday musicals will be presented as part of the Company’s 27th season.
