FPAC to Host Annual Fundraising Gala

The Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) will hold their annual fundraising Gala hosted by Broadway’s Ben Cameron (original cast of Wicked) on Saturday, November 4 at 6 p.m. at THE BLACK BOX. Attendees will delight in a vibrant fundraising extravaganza filled with cocktails, fine dining, and Broadway celebrity guest entertainment. Both in person and live-stream options are available to participate in the live, silent, and online auctions. A Red Carpet will be hosted by Broadway’s Christopher Rice-Thomson (Hamilton).  Proceeds from the Gala support the professional development of emerging artists and enable world-class talent to perform in downtown Franklin, amplifying the cultural fabric of MetroWest Boston. 

From the beginning, FPAC has followed a mission dedicated to promoting the performing arts with an emphasis on youth development. Through FPAC, THE BLACK BOX stage is graced by Broadway stars, professional artists, local performers, and students of the arts. Their performances feature live orchestras and professional artists, and they often provide a first glimpse into the world of theater for local youth. 

Gala and Telethon host, and longtime FPAC friend, Ben Cameron has appeared on Broadway in Aida and the original casts of Wicked and Footloose. He has toured with Sweet Charity, Fame, Tommy, Footloose, and State Fair and is currently the creator/host of Broadway Sessions at The Green Room 42 in New York City.

FPAC is an Actors’ Equity Small Professional Theater company based at THE BLACK BOX in downtown Franklin. Each season, FPAC produces musicals, plays, ballets, and more featuring Broadway stars, professional actors, local artists, and students of the arts. This season FPAC will present Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Buyer & Cellar, Bright Star, an immersive Tarzan starring Broadway’s original Tarzan Josh Strickland, and August: Osage County.
