ABOUT US

    

     The Pennsylvania Performing Arts Company was established to provide performance opportunities for all ages, cultures and levels of talent.   PPAC is not interested in finding the most talented performers but involvement of people whom the arts will benefit the most.  Our charities have been in the past, “Make A Wish”  foundation, “Saint Judes Children’s Hospital,” local benefits hosted to help brain injured children, breast cancer victim and a child born without ribs.  When there is a need we organize.  

What have we done?
    The Pennsylvania Performing Arts Theatre has sponsored events for many programs.  Each year a Spring Gala of performances including excerpts from a ballet as well as choreography competition winners and music competition winners.  Solely supported by tickets for each event.  The non profit has also sponsored an annual performance of “The Nutcracker.”   
    A scholarship fund was also organized. PPAC has given over $10,000.00 in the past 5 years to students for classes in the arts.  Presently, the program has sponsored a number of youth musical theatre performances.  Priority has been given to the performance area for the students and the rehearsal areas.
    The Pennsylvania Performing Arts performs in the Pennsylvania Performing Arts theatre.  In 2016, a new stage was purchased for the theatre, backdrop LED lights, backstage rooms on either sides of the stage, one with a bathroom.  We have acquired a restaurant license, had air testing and monthly water testing.  Raised the ceilings in the theatre area.
We are presently placing in two new heaters because the building is comprised of four heaters and we are using donations to slowly replace all.
    The Theatre is owned by the Conservatory of Music and Dance who holds their classes here and provides PPAC with accommodations based on their performances and rehearsals
