The Franklin Performing Arts Company's Box Office Opens Today for Holiday Events

The Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) holiday box office will open to the general public today, October 29 for FPAC's annual presentation of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker and on November 5 for Humbug!, FPAC's original musical adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol.

The Nutcracker will be performed on Saturday, December 8, at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, December 9, at 2:00 p.m. at the Thomas D. Mercer Auditorium, 224 Oak Street in Franklin. FPAC's production of this timeless classic features more than 100 dancers from 25 towns and many area dance schools. Guest artists Erica Cornejo, Boston Ballet principal dancer, and Carlos Molina, former American Ballet Theatre soloist and Boston Ballet principal, will dance the roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier. Performances also feature a live, professional orchestra under the direction of Peter Cokkinias.

Humbug! will be staged on Saturday, December 15, at 2:00 and 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, December 16, at 2:00 p.m., also at the Thomas D. Mercer Auditorium. Humbug! features musical hits of every genre and has become a family favorite since debuting as part of FPAC's 2008 season. The production showcases a talented cast of 150 area students, community performers and professional artists, with live accompaniment by a 10-piece band of professional Boston musicians.

A distinctive suburban non-profit arts organization founded in 1991, FPAC presents quality performances while offering opportunities for professional artists, amateur performers, families and students of the arts to work together in a collaborative and creative environment.

Tickets cost $30, $28, and $26 for each show and may be purchased at The Spotlight Shop (34 Main Street, Franklin), through online ticketing at www.fpaconline.com, or by phone at 508-528-8668. Group sales are available for civic groups and organizations.
