The Franklin Theatre
The Act Too Players (ATP), Williamson County’s premier training program for all youths interested in the performing arts will take the stage in May with the mounting of three musical productions: Once Upon a Mattress, Princess and the Pea, and Company. There will also be a Saturday morning performance of the play, Charlotte’s Web. The productions will run from May 9th through May 18th at the historic Franklin Theatre located in Downtown Franklin, Tennessee.
Theatre Arts Director Sondra Morton stated, “In January, the Act Too Players successfully produced three different children’s at the Franklin Theatre. We had a wonderful experience and we are looking forward to being at the Franklin Theatre for our May shows and for our summer camps.”
In PRINCESS AND THE PEA, eager-to-wed Prince Nicholas narrates the story of a classic fairy tale kingdom anxious for his royal nuptials. But there’s a problem … overbearing Queen Minerva insists upon testing any girl who wants to marry her son, and not one is able to gain her approval. King Reginald loses his patience, the trusty Court Jester searches for the right bride, and an even-tempered chamber maid comforts her childhood friend, the Prince. Will Princess Cecily be up to the challenge? Or Griselda? Perhaps Princess Jillian can pass the big test. You won’t believe the shocking ending to this tangled tale. An irresistible, traditional-sounding score and a witty script bring the satisfying story to life. Be sure to say “I do” to this traditional tale told anew.
This is a shorter show, perfect for young audience members! Rated G.
