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 January with the mounting of the pop/rock musical production of SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD. The production will be January 22nd at the historic Franklin Theatre located in Downtown Franklin, Tennessee.
In SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD Jason Robert Brown says, “It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice, or take a stand, or turn around and go back.” These are the stories and characters of today, the SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD. Brown transports his audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge 57 stories above Fifth Avenue to meet a startling array of characters ranging from a young man who has determined that basket-ball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams and a soulless marriage. This is a two act musical with a Pop/Rock influence. There is only one performance on January 22nd.This production is Directed by Megan Chambers and performed by students ages 14-18.
(Two Act Musical, Revue, Pop/Rock)
Before Songs for a New World starts, audiences will see a theatrical showcase from the Act Too Players classes including Comedy Improv, Vocal Performance, Dance Pieces, and Monologues.

For children and teens, these classes, camps, and workshops open doors to imagination and self-confidence while holding fast to the discipline and work ethic that is crucial for any craft. Act Too Players has produced over 60 productions and strives to provide students the opportunity to learn and grow not only as a performer but also as an individual. We pride ourselves in being a respected training program for all youths interested in the performing arts.
