In this live musical quest, Franklin will face his greatest challenge when he tries to reclaim his sister Harriet’s stolen golden necklace. Franklin and his friends must reveal their noble skills to prove that they are worthy of the ultimate title: Knighthood. On this courageous crusade, the gang must triumph against a series of unexpected obstacles in order to win the treasured Silver Shield, including a fire-breathing dragon, two riddle-loving gargoyles, and a wild-winged beast!

Franklin’s compelling story about acceptance, compassion and friendship set before original songs and an extraordinary scenic background will have the whole family on their feet and cheering for the gang to prevail against all odds. With teamwork and humility, they all come together to save the day!

My 4.5 year old son loved the show. He likes Franklin (has all his books) and is really into Knights, swords and shields right now so this was perfect. He really likes musicals and loved singing along. Near the end of the show he ran up to the front and sang along. Two thumbs up from a 4.5 year old!

My wife and I took our two year old to see Franklin. I'll admit I was a little nervous about how long her attention span would be, but needless to say, I had nothing to be nervous about. Once the performers hit the stage our girl was spellbound. We are fairly sure she didn't blink through the entire show. I'm writing this 4 days after the show and she is still talking about it.

My children were very excited to see Franklin Live. The story was cute and taught a good message to the kids. They put in a part to get the kids up and running and dancing to keep from getting bored. It was a good length for kids and enjoyable. They did run out of tshirts which seems to happen at alot of these shows if you don't stand in line before the show. The show was overall great for young kids and kept their attention.

Franklin was a great afternoon out for kids. Most kids were 3-6 years old. The show was a nice mellow affair featuring a story which taught the values of friendship, sharing, loyalty and compassion. The songs that were sung were catchy and kids were encouraged to clap along. The storyline was easy to follow, even for the smallest spectators. Overall a really great "theatre" experience for the whole family... My son is still talking about it.

My daughter and I have never actually seen an episode of Franklin, and she still had a blast. She knows who Franklin is but no one else. The play did not require us to have background knowledge of the show to enjoy it. It kept her attention the whole time! The play was interactive and we gladly participated! The costumes were nice and colorful. Also, the play made attempts at teaching kids the meaning of some words which I definitely appreciate!
