From Our Artistic director
Welcome to PAA!
I hope you will explore our website and learn more about he incredible program we have to offer. If you take one thing away from this site, I hope it's the understanding that,
Our program is not about making stars.
That's not to say we don't have some incredibly talented students. We do! But instead of focusing on the extraordinary talent in our midst, we choose to place the emphasis on each individual's contribution, and how critical each part is for the theatrical experience to succeed. This includes those backstage, onstage, and in director, choreographer, management, design, and technical positions. The applause at the end is for every person who participated, including those who are not visible to the audience.
Experiencing the power of collective achievement provides a foundation on which our students build an awareness of their place in our world, and deepen their understanding that together, we become more than we are individually.
