I was blown away by the talent, professionalism and energy on stage at All is Calm. I felt like I was in the trenches of World War I and was moved several times. A+++ would go again.
Franklin Theatre Works production of All is Calm was a powerful historical production that moved audience members to tears. The level of production vastly exceeded expectations, and the diversity, talent, and passion, of those involved was evident. FTW is an astounding organization.
I was touched and inspired by this great non-profits' presentation of "All is Calm" during the Hhoiday season of 2019. They do wonderful work!
My first experience was seeing All is Calm back in 2019. I was amazed at the professionalism and talent of this performance. I remember being so moved by the singing . The theatre itself is quite welcoming and charming. I told multiple people about this new found gem that I experienced and then COVID hit. I am very much looking forward to returning for another show and bringing some new friends as well.
Each and every one of their performances that we've had the pleasure of attending over the years has been far beyond our expectations. For a small local troupe they do amazing work. The productions are very professional from start to finish. Franklin Theater Works is well worth supporting. They are an asset to the community and the state.
Franklin Theatre Works brings enrichment to the lives of our community! The director, Maeve, is an exceptional person. Her commitment to running this group and also teaching and directing is truly admirable.
As a parent, volunteer and audience member of FTW, I can speak very highly of the quality of this organization. FTW really inspired & challenged the young actors and production teams. It exposed them to art, music, and literature, and helped to foster a greater appreciation for the arts. Each show is impeccably produced - from the artistic and period details of the set, the costumes and props... to the actors confident portrayal of each role. Every show is a lesson. The students learn the history of the period of the show, the societal norms, architecture and dress. They learn responsibility, respect, communication skills and the pay off hard work. Most importantly, they learn that they can do it!
It was a privilege and pleasure to assist with FTW productions over the years, and watch the incredible and inspirational transformation of the organization and the young people who participated.
I have seen many local children profit greatly from their FTW experiences. And I have enjoyed the fruits of their labors! What a bonus to benefit the community in two ways.
Great community theatre that's provided great local entertainment and culture, while giving skills and self-confidence to budding actors, both children and adults.
Franklin Theatre Works provides children the opportunity to experience and participate in the performing arts in a professional yet supportive and fun environment. Their productions are class acts. My daughter loved the experience.
It was a pleasure to watch Maeve and Franklin Theatre Works get these young students to perform at their best. She took kids that were shy and quiet and gave them the guidance and self esteem to perform on stage. Can't say enough wonderful things about this program.
My daughter took acting lessons and was in a production at Franklin Theatre Works several years ago, but we still talk about the great experience and how Maeve is a great teacher and class act. Franklin Theatre Works is truly a gift to the community.
Both of my boys participated in FTW from grade school through high school. The experience was fantastic. Their verbal skills and comfort levels speaking in public was greatly improved over the years and continues to help them in their chosen professions.
