Redding Performing Arts Center

We've had a wonderful semester at Redding Performing Arts Center with your students! Our high school Performance Theatre students performed Almost, Maine, our Children’s Theatre students performed How I Became a Pirate, and our Youth Theatre Class presented Jingle Jury last week. Private lesson students and our music ensembles have performed in monthly recitals and Christmas concerts. It's been an exciting time at RPAC!

Coming up next semester, we're presenting The Rainbow Fish with the Children’s Theatre, Dr. Doolittle with our Youth Theatre students, and Hello, Dolly with our High School Performance Theatre class. Our private lessons, music, and dance programs continue to grow, and we'd love to have your students jump in on the Spring Semester fun. We will also be adding some new classes including visual art. Please find our Spring 2022 brochure attached, as well as a flyer with our upcoming production announcements. Feel free to pass along this brochure to families who might be interested in joining us!

We look forward to our continued partnership with you, your families, and your students!
