FPAC to host Gala and Telethon
The Franklin Performing Arts Company (FPAC) will hold a Gala and Telethon hosted by Broadway’s Ben Cameron (original cast of Wicked) on Saturday, November 6 at 7 p.m. The evening will include live and silent auctions, a celebrity telethon, and great performances live at THE BLACK BOX or streamed to audience’s homes. This year, Gala attendees are invited to choose their own way to celebrate the FPAC Gala. Tickets are available to enjoy the event in-person as a part of the Live Studio Audience complete with a Swag Bag, Hors d’oeurves, and a toast, followed by dinner provided by 3 Restaurant. Or, audiences can watch from home starting at 8 p.m. and enjoy a delicious dinner prepared and packaged by 3 Restaurant from the comfort of their own home.
Gala and Telethon proceeds will benefit the initiatives of FPAC and THE BLACK BOX. 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.
At-home Gala and Telethon attendees can have their dinner delivered to their home by one of FPAC’s celebrity guests, or can drive-through at THE BLACK BOX to pick it up. The online auction will be open prior to the November 6 event.
FPAC supporters are invited to call in to the Gala Telethon. Upon making a donation, callers can chat it up with a celebrity guest of their choosing. And as always, the evening features top-notch FPAC Gala Entertainment featuring Broadway stars and FPAC Favorites whether attending in-person or at home.
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 Laurie Beechman Theater in New York City.
