Conceived and directed by Nick Paone, FPAC’s Whatever Theater Festival brings together professional artists, FPAC alumni, students and community performers in a collaborative theatrical experience that showcases an exciting range of dramatic and comedic works. This year’s Whatever Theater Festival will be part of the 3rd annual Franklin Cultural Festival, hosted by the Franklin Cultural District Committee. The visual, performing and culinary arts celebration will take place July 26-30 at various downtown Franklin locations within the proposed Cultural District. FPAC’s 2017 Whatever Theater Festival is sponsored in part by grants from the Norfolk, North Attleborough and Wrentham Cultural Councils, local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. SPAMALOT is presented through special arrangement with Theatrical Rights Worldwide.
