A reminder that Franklin’s charity for this year is Baby Moses Child Sanctuary ( so let’s be sure to get the first ticket sales for the year off to a fire cracking start! 

See you all there for another spectacular festival!

We are still hoping to find a dedicated videographer for the festival, so if you have a passion for filming and want to put something really cool on your resume, this is the perfect opportunity! A humble incentive will be offered for sharing your valuable time and skills with your local community theatre! Contact for more information.


Protea Stage Productions

We would like to thank Protea for inviting us to participate in their very first Margaret Todd Memorial Showcase recently. Much fun was had by all and from the positive feedback received the audiences were thoroughly entertained. Congratulations on such a successful event and Franklin looks forward to participating again next year!

Protea is also bringing a production to our One Act Play Festival next month and we wish them the very best. Please come and support on 7 April when they hit the stage with “April Groom”.


RLT Productions

RLT will be opening the festival with a performance of “One Last Time With Feeling!” on Friday 6 April at 7.30pm. You don’t want to miss this one! It may actually be ‘the last time’ !! 😉




EADS is performing two plays in our festival, “Last Tango in Little Vale” and “Goggles.” Be sure to come and support them and show some love on Saturday 7 April.
