Save the Date for FPAC’s 2019 Gala Hosted by Broadway’s Michael James Scott - Oct 12

The Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) will present their annual Gala on Saturday, October 12 hosted by Michael James Scott who is currently starring as the Genie in Disney’s Aladdin on Broadway. With live and silent auctions, great food, and crafted cocktails the Gala celebration begins at 6 p.m. at THE BLACK BOX, Franklin Performing Arts Company’s home venue in downtown Franklin. Proceeds benefit initiatives of FPAC and THE BLACK BOX.

From the beginning, FPAC has followed a mission dedicated to promoting the performing arts with an emphasis on youth development. Through FPAC, THE BLACK BOX stage is graced by Broadway stars, professional artists, local amateurs, and students of the arts. Their performances feature live orchestras and professional artists, and they often provide a first glimpse into the world of theater for local youth. This year’s FPAC Gala celebrates “Wishes” and the organization’s goal to continue to bring high quality entertainment to the Metro-West region.

Michael James Scott is a Broadway actor most well known for playing the Genie in Disney's Aladdin in the Original Australian Cast, as well as in the West End, U.S. National Tour, and Broadway productions. While still in college, Scott was the standby for Broadway legend Ben Vereen on the international tour of Fosse. His other Broadway credits include The Book of Mormon (original cast), Elf, Something Rotten!, All Shook Up, Hair, Tarzan, and The Pirate Queen.
