ARE KEEPING THE ARTBEAT ALIVE BECAUSE WE L❤VE THE ARTS! The Franklin-Simpson Community Arts Council also loves the great year we have planned in 2017 and you are going to L❤VE it too! We have some great Spring, Summer and Fall events planned with lots of drama music and comedy which your're gonna love!
We love romance and music....and we love drama too! For great drama, there is no better than Agatha Christie's most celebrated courtroom drama, "Witness for the Prosecution" to be held at the Goodnight Auditorium on April 28th, 29th, & 30th. A few years after World War II, Leonard Vole is accused of murdering a rich widow, Emily French, who has bequeathed him a substantial sum of money. Vole stands trial for the murder of his beneficiary, and many think he is guilty. Mr. Wilfred Robarts, a skilled lawyer who has recently been ill, is asked to defend Vole. Barbara Shriver will once again direct. Tickets will go on sale in March so keep watching this website.
Everybody loves "The Wizard of 0z" and the F-S Arts Council will share that love in July as we present one of the most popular musicals of all time! Follow the yellow brick road to the Goodnight Auditorium in Franklin on July 13th, 14th, 15th, & 16th to see the famous story about a man without a heart, another without a brain, one scaredy cat, a con man, and two women fighting over a pair of shoes! Now that is what makes great theatre! The “Wizard of Oz” will be directed by Jeff Moore of Bowling Green with music direction by Liz Little Cook of Franklin. Jeff and Liz are no strangers to the theatre as both have directed many productions for the F-S Arts Council. Tickets will be available in May...keep watching this website. .
What do we all love as much, if not more, than romance, music and drama? We all love to laugh.... and that is just what you will do when you come to Franklin in September to see comedian, James Gregory. Even if you haven't heard of James Gregory, there's a good chance you've heard him on radio or TV. The veteran comedian and Georgia native, who bills himself as "The Funniest Man in America”, creates an evening of non-stop laughter with a wry sense of the absurd, a Southern accent and universal story-telling. The ridiculous, the common and sometimes even the simplest events all become hilarious in the hands of this master storyteller and world-class comedian.
For any questions or further information on any of the above-mentioned events, please contact the Franklin-Simpson Arts Council Director, Brownie Bennett, at 270-586-6799 or 270-776-5783.
