We’re bringing the mission of The Franklin Theatre to life with our upcoming “Summer Sessions” series! This 4-day event is intended to grant middle school-aged and high school-aged students an in-depth look into specific areas of the theatre and music industries. If you’re looking to master your craft in acting, musical theater, set design, make-up or music business, come learn from passionate educators and working arts professionals in this transformational program!

Participants will learn how all facets of the business work, write & record a professional song, learn the basics of in-studio recording, get coached by top vocal and performance coaches, learn branding and marketing basics from professionals who work with some of the biggest music artists and venues, and learn to understand the economics and logistics of touring and artist management.
