Confusion and fun are the business of the day at Kamp KAOS, a summer camp that boasts its own 12-watt radio station. It’s opening day at the camp and director Wally Schneider is already in trouble: it’s up to the wacky gang of counselors and campers to save the day.

Cost per camper is $150
Presenting Frozen, Jr.
Friday, Aug. 16 & Sat., Aug. 17 at 7 pm
Campers will begin with the basic aspects of theater games and stage awareness. They will work on choreography and stage directions as well as character creation. The entire program culminates in two performances of Disney’s Frozen, Jr., featuring all of the memorable songs from the animated film plus five
new songs written for the Broadway production.
FACT is an offspring of the Franklin Opera House, Franklin Footlight Theatre and the FHS Players. The program covers basics in theater training and performance art, and culminates in a group production at the end of each camp. FACT provides a positive experience for hundreds of children in grades one through eight. It’s also an incredible educational experience for the teenage interns who are hired to work for the program. Working under the guidance of the Artistic Director they learn how to teach children to perform. They take what they learn, plus their own theater experience and work with groups of children. The result is amazing!
FACT is made possible with support from
