Welcome to the Franklin Stage Company

The power of theatre is to bring together a community, made up of audience and artists alike. Franklin Stage Company is not a community theatre but a theatre for a far-reaching, diverse, and grateful community. The company began and continues as a labor of love, and its philosophy has inspired a legion of followers both onstage and off. The company is proud to contribute to the growth of the arts in the Western Catskills of central New York State.
