Anna Bovi | Artistic Director 

Anna Bovi is a Franklin native, writer and mother of two beautiful girls. Her love for the arts began at a young age, being raised in a musical household. She has been writing music since age 11, recording many original songs, as well as vocals for other artists. She has performed in many venues, including The Well Coffee House, Roots Academy and Holland America Cruise Line.  Anna has been a part of many musical projects, including a jazz duo and is the face and voice behind recording artist Elizabeth Seasons. She was involved in theater productions throughout her school years and excels in creative writing and photography.

At age 19, she was inspired by the tight-knit community of her hometown of Franklin, TN and combined her talents, producing her first original musical, "Franklin: the Musical". The musical was performed in Florida and the titular town of Franklin, TN, garnering positive reviews. Teaching and directing a large cast and crew of all ages, Anna was able to see her dream come to reality as "Franklin: the Musical" was brought to life in the very theatre in which it takes place. It was this show that catapulted her artistic drive to be immersed in Franklin's creative community.

Anna is looking forward to helping enhance the unique artistic environment Franklin has to offer!
