Theatre Student Opportunities

From the moment they walk on campus, Franklin College students find themselves playing important roles in theatre productions. Theatre at Franklin is different than at larger institutions. Students get to perform more roles because of our smaller size, and they aren’t competing with graduate students. And auditions are open to everyone! We are a dynamic program, producing four shows a year which explore a variety of genres. Students have the opportunity to get practical, hands-on experience in all areas of theatre production. Students also get the experience of working with professional guest artists each year.
