The Franke Center Children’s Theater exists because of vision of two women, Kathie Boyer & Candi Putnam, who in 2004, wanted to create extraordinary theater experiences for young thespians, and to advance theater as a means of educating, challenging, and inspiring young people. The vision of the Franke Center Children’s Theater is to promote education, creativity, imagination, and originality, and have a positive effect on the individuals who participate. Theater is a place that allows for a ‘safe space’ for children to express themselves freely and without judgment. We are thrilled to continue and build upon the wonderful program that has brought joy and comfort to hundreds of children over the years.
