THE BLACK BOX: Franklin's 240th Birthday Party - Feb 16

THE BLACK BOX in downtown Franklin hosts a community celebration marking Franklin’s 240th birthday this Friday, February 16, from 7-11 p.m. Enjoy fun Franklin history, shared by Joe Landry, along with historic photos and town trivia. 

The birthday party will also feature music, including a special appearance by Franklin’s own Jamie Barrett, as well as snacks and a cash bar. This special event marks the milestone 240th anniversary of Franklin’s secession from Wrentham in 1778.

“We hope to have a fun night of conversation, storytelling, and reminiscing,” notes Franklin Performing Arts Company director and lifelong Franklin resident Raye Lynn Mercer. “The date Franklin seceded from Wrentham seemed like a good excuse for a party in the dead of winter and an opportunity to get people together, share some laughs, and celebrate our town.”

Franklin Birthday Sponsors are Keefe Insurance and D.G. Ranieri Real Estate. Party Sponsors are Simons Furniture, The Rome Restaurant, and NHS Printing. Additional sponsor Big Y will provide the birthday cake.

In keeping with the light-hearted nature of the evening, ticket prices are $5 for Total Townie (Lifetime in Franklin), $10 for Townie (25 years in Franklin), $15 for Townie-in-Training (10 years in Franklin), and $20 for Newcomers. Pass the Townie Test and get your money back! 

THE BLACK BOX theater, music, and event venue is located at 15 West Central Street. Proceeds support THE BLACK BOX and the arts in Franklin. For tickets and more information, visit or call (508) 528-3370.
