On Monday, the Franklin production was ironing out early kinks to be ready to open on Thursday at 7 p.m. in Franklin's auditorium. The show runs three nights - Thursday, Friday and Saturday with all performances starting at 7 p.m.
The show features a live orchestra, the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic songs, terrific performances by Turk and others including a very sweet Gretl who falls asleep on the steps during the "So Long, Farewell" scene, and great wardrobe.
These school shows benefit the theater and music programs allowing them to give the students a more rounded education experience as well as give back to the community. Doors open
