These crazy performers first graced the Franklin stage back in 2012 with “Cooking with The Calamari Sisters.” Audiences back then were first introduced to their blend of musical comedy and live cooking. Interaction with the audience became a staple of their shows too, which followed suit with 2013’s “Christmas with The Calamari Sisters.”

It’s likely that if you go, you could get a sample of the food as well as the comedy. Jim and Cathe Miller, of the Main Street Market in Polk, will provide all of the ingredients and supplies actors Dan Lavender and Jay Falzone will use on stage.

You’re welcome to visit the classrooms and talk with teachers too. A small fee will only be required if you would like to participate in the ice cream social portion of the event. More information for the open house and art show can be obtained from Tracy Walter at and (814) 676-9360.
