Evan Freeze Promoted to Operations Manager

FRANKLIN, TN. – The Franklin Theatre is proud to name Evan Freeze as its new Operations Manager.  Freeze will be responsible for relations with visitors and attendees of theatre events by supervising and further developing the theatre’s concessions and box office staff as well as coordinating volunteers.  He will also coordinate with organizations and companies renting the theater for special events and meetings. Freeze is a Franklin native and has been with the theater since it’s re-opening in July of 2011.

“I was beyond excited to join the Franklin Theatre team before the grand re-opening,” says Freeze.  “I remember coming to the theatre with my parents to see movies as a child and I was thrilled to see the community come together to save it.  It’s such a vital and integral part of the character of Downtown Franklin. I’m excited to be given the opportunity to continue work for the theatre and this community on an even deeper level.”

“Evan’s passion and commitment fits perfectly into our leadership team and we’re delighted to see talents grow and get promoted within our own family,” explains Franklin Theatre Director Dan Hays.

Freeze will be graduating from Belmont University’s business program in May 2014.
