Dear FPAC Community and patrons of THE BLACK BOX,

I hope you are well as we navigate this incredibly difficult time. I wish the best possible for our artists, creatives, technicians, volunteers, patrons, donors, and sponsors as we strive to do our part, by staying home, to help mitigate the Coronavirus crisis. 

As many of you know and have experienced first-hand, the arts have the power to connect us and to heal. To that end, FPAC remains ready to welcome and entertain you as soon as it is safe to turn the lights back on at THE BLACK BOX.

Our goal is to reschedule all Franklin Performing Arts Company shows and events on the calendar at THE BLACK BOX. We eagerly await the time we can announce new dates, but for the time-being, the following shows and events are currently postponed:
  • Legally Blonde The Musical
  • Electric Youth In Concert
  • Broadway In Franklin Weekend
  • Culinary Cabaret
  • FPAC 5K Road Race and 1 Mile Fun Run
  • FPAC Golf Tournament

When new dates for these events are announced, those who currently hold tickets will be contacted first to choose a performance and exchange tickets. If you are unable to attend a postponed performance, please consider gifting your tickets to a friend, or donating your ticket purchase back to help support our company and venue. 

The outpouring of concern for FPAC and THE BLACK BOX has been heartening, and given the devastating financial impact on nonprofits like ours, we’ll be counting on you when it’s show time once again!

While our doors are closed, please like Franklin Performing Arts Company on Facebook (if you haven’t already!), and let us inspire you every night at 7:30 with “Great Performances …. At Home” featuring FPAC favorite performers on Facebook Live. I hope this provides a little entertainment and fun for you at home as we await the opportunity to get out of our living rooms and back on stage. 

And for now as you shop from home, please consider using AmazonSmile at and make FPAC your nonprofit of choice, thereby donating a small percentage of your purchase to FPAC. Kindly join us on social media - like, follow, comment, share! Expanding our reach on social media is something we can accomplish from home with your help.

Please stay home and be well. I can’t wait to see your smiling faces soon.
