Studio Tenn, the professional theater company that produces shows at the Factory at Franklin’s Jamison Theater announced this week that it is moving its business offices to downtown Franklin.
The company’s offices have moved to Generations Church, which took over space formerly used by Franklin First United Methodist Church at 408 Church Street, Suite 304.
Studio Tenn is not moving its productions, however.
“We look forward to continuing to use the Factory at Franklin’s Jamison Theater as our home for mainstage productions,” Studio Tenn wrote in an announcement of the move.
However, all mail or box office ticket purchases will now be handled through the downtown office.
After Franklin First United Methodist left to buildings when it moved to a new campus inside the Mack Hatcher Parkway loop, a group of local developers announced plans for a mixed use redevelopment there. The church retained its historic sanctuary at 148 5th Ave S.
