Our 51st season is just as exciting as all the ones that have come before.

We will produce 2, full-length musicals, present two Shakespeare productions, take 6 different shows to area schools and are expecting as many as 15,000 audience members over the next 12 months.

Teachers, check out our selection of student matinées throughout the year at the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts. These matinées are priced to include all of your students, with shows starting at just $3 per seat. Each page includes curriculum connections to relate to your classroom and study guides are available once your class is registered.

Principals, we will be offering 6 different outreach shows this year ranging from preschool-12th grade subject matter. These shows are grant-funded through the Ohio Arts Council and available first-come, first-served.

Parents, have a child that loves to sing and dance? Send them to us and we’ll put them in a show! Participation in our Children’s Theatre productions is always free.

PAAC has something for everyone in your life who loves the arts. We can’t wait to see you this season and here’s to another wonderful 50 years!
