Once Upon a Party

We are super chuffed to announce that Panto auditions were a huge success! Thank you to all the terrifically talented auditionees who attended, you certainly didn’t make the casting process any easier for our director! That said, casting has been done and rehearsals are already off to a blazing start.

As we know, time flies by so fast that before you know it show time will be here, so please diarise the show dates now and start informing family and friends so that no one misses out!


Fridays and Saturdays: 16th, 17th, 23rd and 24th November – 7 for 7.30pm
There will also be a matinee on Saturday 24th – 1.30 for 2pm



The themed quiz has become quite a favourite with our Franklin family of late and as such we will be looking at hosting another one on Saturday 17th November in the early afternoon. Watch this space for details!



Protea’s “Hang:10” festival takes place this weekend (21st and 22nd September) with Franklin offerings on Friday night. Show time is 19h00 for 19h30 and it will be awesome to have some support for our fabulous Franklinites who have put in a ton of hard work over a very short period of time to produce six amazingly entertaining skits! We are delighted to be sharing the stage with our sister societies – RLT Productions, Startime Players, and of course Protea Stage Productions. Click the poster for all the details.

Itching to entertain you are Oriela van der Walt, Mark Boshoff, Stephen Slade and Graham Shirley. Follow RLT on Facebook.
