Fun Fantasy Quiz

If you know your movies and you love fantasy, be sure to join us this Saturday 28th at 3pm for our Fantasy Movie Quiz!!


R50 secures your ticket, and if you’d like to stay for the show later that evening (see details below), it’ll only set you back another R50 – a saving of R30 for a full day and night of superb entertainment!!

Coffee and cake will be on sale as well as light refreshments at the tuck shop. Click here to view the poster for all the details.


Make it extra fantastical and take home a cool prize for best fantasy costume! 


Opening Night!

The time has arrived and we are ready and rearing to open with a bang (pun intended) this Friday night! Come and enjoy a good laugh and witness some crazy action onstage. Show dates are 27th & 28th July, and 3rd & 4th August, 7 for 7.30pm.

If you haven’t booked yet, what are you waiting for?? Contact Wendy NOW on 082 366 9987 (SMS or WhatsApp only) or email bookings@franklin.org.za to book your spot! Payment secures your seat.

Ticket prices are R80 for adults, R60 for students & pensioners and only R50 for Franklin members. BONUS: If you join us for both the quiz and the show this Saturday, you pay only R100 in total for both events! Now that’s a steal. 


Our chosen charity for this year is Baby Moses Child Sanctuary and we would like to run a charity drive for them in conjunction with our ongoing collection of 10% of the year’s ticket sales. Please click here to see if you could help out with any of the items on their wish list and bring them along on the show nights. Let’s do it for the kids! 



Franklin Players will be participating in Protea Stage Production’s “HANG:10” festival taking place in Benoni on the 21st of September. 

This is a wonderful opportunity for those who weren’t cast in our mid-year production as well as anyone keen to act but not able to fully commit to the time demands that come with a full length production.


A new round of auditions is taking place on Wednesday 8th August at 7.30pm. Those who have already been cast must also come along for callbacks so we can allocate casts to scripts and finalise the rehearsal schedule. Rehearsals kick off on Sunday 12th August.

Our resident playwright has been penning at a furious pace so there’s an even bigger pool of scripts to go around. Don’t miss out, this is going to be fun!
