Franklin School for the Performing Arts Slates Summer Programs for Children and Teens

Franklin School for the Performing Arts (FSPA) announces a summer session of theater programs, ballet intensives, one-week camps, voice and instrumental lessons, and dance classes in ballet, jazz, tap and contemporary. The summer session runs from July 2 to August 24, with registration beginning March 5.

FSPA Summer Theater provides the opportunity for hands-on immersion in a Broadway Boot Camp, cabaret show, play or musical theater production, with enrollment for one to five weeks. The Cabaret week (July 23-27) focuses on repertoire choices, song interpretation and presentation, and concludes with a cabaret style revue at THE BLACK BOX theater in downtown Franklin. 

The three-day Broadway Boot Camp (July 30-August 1) brings Broadway headliners to FSPA for song and dance master classes and coaching on individual performance skills. A weeklong drama program (August 20-24) presents a straight play, while a two-week musical theater program (August 6-17) stages a major book musical at THE BLACK BOX.
