Food Drinks

FOOD & DRINKS: Students are encouraged to bring a snack and water during rehearsals. 

However, on the main dress rehearsal evenings, the Franklin Theatre Association will provide food and drinks right after school. Your help with this occasion is important as we usually have over 60 people to feed at the most.

The reason for this activity is because all show personnel are required to be at all dress rehearsals. These rehearsals will last for about 4 to 5 hours while many final adjustment are addressed during the dress rehearsals. Usually this involves about 3 nights prior to opening night of the show.

The Booster Parent Group is providing Water in the Classroom, but we need small 5/6oz drinking cups. If you can provide some, this is appreciated.

Cast Party
