WE ARE KEEPING THE ARTBEAT ALIVE BECAUSE WE L❤VE THE ARTS! The Franklin-Simpson Community Arts Council is celebrating 41 years of bringing great arts and entertainment to Franklin and the surrounding area. Due to Covid, we didn't have the opportunity to perform for you for about two years. We were so excited to be able to finally bring arts and entertainment to you once again in 2021. In June, we were so excited to be back in the newly renovated, Goodnight Auditorium and delighted to host the wonderful artistry of two lovely, talented ladies, Kathy Mattea & Suzy Bogguss, with their first joint performance, Together at Last. We followed that up in July with an encore performance of Debbie Thornton's Historical Fiction, This Place We Call Home, based on our hometown, Franklin, Kentucky. We celebrated our 40th Anniversary in August with a Summer Musical Review, we also helped sponsor the inaugural Summer Vibes Festival held in Downtown Franklin, as well as the High School Musical, In the Heights. In addition, in October, we once again sponsored the Halloween Costume Contest during Boofest, followed up with our annual Christmas play, The Bigger/Better Pageant at Barrington Hills and our annual Christmas Concert in December.
We have already had some great events so far this year with lots of great acting and singing from about 50 local children in our Youth Theatre Musical, Disney's Aladdin, Jr. in Match, performed the hilarious comedy, Greater Tuna, as part of our Retro Series and we are in production of the award-winning musical Fiddler on the Roof that will be performed at the end of July. Future plans include the Costume Contest during the annual Boofest, a Dinner Theatre in October, and a Christmas Play and annual Christmas Concert in December. Please continue to check this website on the Future Events Tabs with more detailed information as it becomes available.
