BrightStone students will hit the main stage in a performance you won’t want to miss. Their annual Christmas Program is set for next Thursday, December 7 at 6:30 p.m. in Liberty Hall at the Factory at Franklin

This one of a kind Christmas show stars the adults with special needs that attend BrightStone’s day program. They have been practicing for months for the opportunity to ring in your holiday season. This year’s theme, “The Most Wonderful Time is Here!”, lives up to its promise with a wonderful list of your Christmas favorites.

There is simply no other holiday event like this one. Many attendees over the years agree, “Our Christmas season doesn’t start until the BrightStone Christmas Program”. This event has left a lasting impact on the community and will certainly warm your heart and bring all who attend into the holiday spirit.

To top it all off, it’s free! This event is free and open to the public every single year. With generous contributions from presenting sponsors such as the Advanced Financial 24/7 Foundation along with Jim and Tracey Anisi, they are able to welcome one and all to join free of charge. There will be plenty of opportunities to shop at the BrightStone store and enjoy some light refreshments provided by Jo’s Cakes and Catering at the reception following the performance.

Over 450 people attend this free performance each year. Everyone will be treated to a memorable performance of their adults singing, dancing, and playing instruments. This amazing program, produced each year by their volunteer music director Judy Fincannon, will most certainly prepare your heart for Christmas.

BrightStone’s mission is to provide a comprehensive work, social support, and future residential community for adults with special needs, expanding their potential and helping them develop mentally, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.
