Last year, the Portsmouth Area Arts Council served over 15,000 children in the Southern Ohio-Appalachian Region through our Main Stage performances, Education Outreach, and Theater Camps. Through these programs, PAAC’s goal is to reach every child regardless of geographic or economic barrier. Please help PAAC continue our 51 year tradition of bringing theatre arts to Appalachian youth!

  • Volunteer
    There’s always exciting ways to volunteer at PAAC!
