The Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) will hold a Virtual Gala and Telethon hosted by Broadway’s Ben Cameron (original cast of Wicked) on Saturday, November 14 at 8:00 pm. The evening will include live and silent auctions, a celebrity telethon, and great performances streamed live from THE BLACK BOX by Broadway stars Emily Koch (Wicked, Waitress), Jim Hogan (Waitress, Phantom of the Opera), Tyrick Wiltez Jones (Hairspray, Finian’s Rainbow), Christopher Rice (Hamilton, The Book of Mormon, Pretty Woman), Clay Thomson (Newsies, Matilda, King Kong), and other FPAC favorites.
A premium ticket for the event will include a Celebrity Dinner Delivery with food by 3 Restaurant and a Gala Swag Bag. A VIP ticket includes drive-through dinner pick up with food by 3 Restaurant. The Virtual Ticket allows guests to enjoy the amazing entertainment, telethon, and auctions from the comfort of their home.
Throughout the pandemic, FPAC has continued to provide entertainment in a safe way. From the middle of March through May, FPAC presented a nightly concert series on Facebook Live featuring performances from Broadway stars and FPAC professional performers. As soon as it was allowed, THE BLACK BOX began presenting socially-distanced entertainment outside on their parking lot stage throughout the summer and fall. FPAC recently finished the run of their first socially-distanced book musical You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown.
Gala and telethon proceeds will benefit the 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.
