Studio Tenn’s 2017-2018 season presents an all new line-up of original works, literary masterpieces, powerful dramas and Broadway classics. Crafted to engage and entertain, this new season has something for everyone. The 2017-2018 shows and dates are as follows:
● The Battle of Franklin – September 7 – 17
● The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe – December 1 – 17
● Doubt: A Parable – February 15 – 25

Beginning its seventh season with a bang, by popular demand Studio Tenn will reprise its original treasure, “The Battle of Franklin,” in September. Chronicling the story of Tod Carter and taking place in the very town Studio Tenn calls home, “The Battle of Franklin” sends us back in time to witness the tragic struggle between father and son, between master and slave, between North and South. A tale of a broken family and a broken nation told beautifully through the power of music and drama, “The Battle of Franklin” creates a stirring performance piece that is about more than mere history but the conflict in all of us and our hope of restoration.
Coming to life this Christmas season, Studio Tenn’s “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” ventures into a magical world like you’ve never seen before. Deemed one of the 100 greatest novels of all time, families around the world love C.S. Lewis’ critically-acclaimed tale of Narnia. Follow Studio Tenn into a winter wonderland behind the wardrobe where animals talk, trees walk, and the White Witch rules the landscape. Just open the door; you’ll never believe what you find.
Following the success of Studio Tenn’s staged reading, “Doubt: A Parable” shares dramatic undertones that are the signature of Studio Tenn dramas. When an unthinkable accusation is leveled against Father Flynn, Sister Aloysius realizes that the only way to get justice is to create it herself. Join Studio Tenn next February in this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama that not only raises questions of uncertainties, but causes audiences to explore who they are, and who they become, in the face of adversity.
Rounding out an all-star season, in May Studio Tenn will bring the too-cool-for-school “T-Birds” and smoking hot “Pink Ladies” to the Jamison Theater with “Grease.” Paying tribute to a cult classic that influenced every generation, “Grease” takes audiences back to a time of drive-in movies, malted milkshakes and the age-old desire to be rebellious. Put on your poodle skirts, grab your saddle shoes and join Studio Tenn in this 2017-2018 season finale where “Grease” is always the word.
