“Our daughter loves doing PAPA workshops more than anything else in the world. Her teachers tell us that they’ve seen her confidence grow tremendously since she’s been involved with the Seacoast Rep. We see a happy kid who can’t wait to get to theater for every rehearsal and performance!”
-Mary Bloser

“My son started attending PAPA overnight camp at the age of 10, and he credits this as one of the most positive influential experiences of his life so far. This program, both overnight camp and the various other day camps and workshop productions offered by PAPA, help to develop engaged, kind, and empathetic young people.”
-Linette Miles

“After my son’s first summer camp session at the Seacoast Repertory Theater, he immediately fell in love with acting, music and the arts in general. He became consumed with learning to play an instrument, singing, and writing plays on his own at home. I credit this to the wonderful people that work with the kids. They are encouraging and wonderful at helping the kids find their inner talent. Their love of theater is infectious and the kids are immediately drawn into their passion.”
-Leigh Cavanaugh

“My 9-year old daughter participated in two youth workshop productions this year and loved every moment! The Seacoast Repertory Theater did a wonderful job introducing performance skills and utilizing children’s natural creativity in the process of creating a musical. I saw an increase in my daughter’s confidence as she learned her lines and sang on stage for a live audience. Thank you to the teachers for sharing your passion, talents, and compassion with seacoast youth.”
