Our performances take place at the historic Franklin Theatre located in Downtown Franklin. Tickets for these productions will range from $15 to $27 for the cabaret seating with tables in the front of the audience. 


Franklin Theatre does assigned seating so the earlier you purchase tickets, the more likely you will be able to pick your favorite seats. Also, many of our shows sell out prior to showtime (especially the Friday classes and the play) so make sure you have your tickets purchased early (even before telling friends and family)!

Beginning in 2014, our performances are being held at the beautifully restored, historic Franklin Theatre. With a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system, and undeniable charm, the Franklin Theatre is the ideal performance venue for our students to learn and excel in their theatrical endeavors.

The Franklin Theatre boasts a:

  • 289 to 322 seating capacity

  • 30×23 foot performance stage

  • State of the art sound and lighting systems

  • HD video presentation with retractable 23 foot screen

  • First-class dressing and green room

  • Full ticketing services including web based convenience


All of the parking in downtown Franklin is FREE. You can park on the street for up to four hours or all day in one of the two public parking garages. One of the parking garages is on Second Avenue South and the other is on Fourth Avenue South. Both garages are less than a 5 minute walk from the theatre.



Our concessions include pizza, fresh popcorn, candy, various soft drinks, beer and wine. 



We have an elevator, fully handicap accessible restrooms and seating. Please notify our box office before you purchase tickets if anyone in your party requires special seating due to visual, auditory or physical impairments.

In addition to published ticket prices, patrons will notice additional fees added to the price of events.


Preservation Fee

Successful historic theaters require ongoing care and plans to fund future costs of repairs and equipment replacement.  The Franklin Theatre adds a modest “preservation fee” to the cost ticket buyers pay for any and all tickets regardless of the point of purchase.  Funds received from these fees are dedicated to major capital expenses and repairs and are retained solely by the Franklin Theatre for these purposes.
