THE ODYSSEY Adapted by Mary Zimmerman based on Homer's Epic Poem

Epic Poem: Is a lengthy narrative poem, ordinarily concerning a serious subject containing details of heroic deeds and events significant to a culture or nation.
1200-1170 BCE

Homer’s Odyssey, one of the oldest war stories in the western world, tells the story of the hero Odysseus’s ten year journey back from the Trojan War. Over his long voyage home, he faces down deadly adversaries, visits the shades of fallen friends in the underworld, overcomes countless obstacles, and—in the process—loses all his men. When Odysseus finally arrives in Ithaca, his home, exhausted and alone, he does not recognize it; nor is he recognizable to most of the people he encounters.

Mary Poppins (by Disney and Cameron Mackintosh based on the stories of P.L. Travers and the Walt Disney Film)

One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."

Mary Poppinsis an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers, and astonishing stagecraft.

G2K Cinderella (G=Good, 2=To, K=Know) Music by Rodgers, Richard | Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.
In this specially created G2K version, all the beloved songs and familiar characters are present and accounted for. However, the entire script has been condensed to better suit young attention spans, and the plot has been slightly altered so as to highlight some important lessons that exist in this timeless tale.

FAT CATS AWARD SHOW (G Rated)

The FAT CAT Awards are a yearly tradition created to honor and celebrate the accomplishments of Franklin Theatre Company (FTC) and the people who make its productions possible. The FAT CAT Awards were conceived by Alisha Herrick (Graduated 2005), the Thespian Club President and a Senior in 2005. Since then, the FAT CAT Ceremony is still a student-led event with input from the Thespian Club and members of FTC. The FAT CAT Awards are FTC's version of the Tony awards but while the Tony's celebrate productions on Broadway, the FAT CATs recognize the Franklin Theatre Company’s entire season of shows and performances during the school year.

Winners are selected by the FTC through a special voting process. First, a nominee ballot is created with each category (30 Categories) from Best Male Lead to Best Bit Part. Then, the top nominees from each category are placed on an official ballot. The official ballots are placed in a sealed box and given to the Artistic Director, Lisa Sandoval. The ballots are counted by Mrs. Sandoval and the winners are placed in a sealed envelope that is not opened until the ceremony.


FAT CAT stands for Franklin Association of Theatre: Character, Attitude, Talent.  Receiving a Fat Cat award means that you demonstrate these qualities. The FAT CAT Award is the most coveted of all awards presented at the ceremony. They are awarded only by Mrs. Sandoval and are not determined by the general ballot.  This is awarded to Seniors.
