The Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts needs your help! 

The inaugural production of the brand new PAPA Student Works Program is set to take the stage July 27th. Smile, a Teen Workshop Production, will be directed by PAPA Student, Joshua Goldberg, with the guidance of Director of Youth Programing, Seraphina Caligiure. We are attempting to raise a minimum of $3,000 by June 7th to cover licensing fees, props, costumes, lights, and production crew.

The Seacoast Repertory Theatre’s mission is one of empowering and inspiring the imaginations of the student, artist, audience and community. Our programming offers students the opportunity to hone theatrical, performance, and life skills including creativity, collaboration, communication and self-confidence.

The Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts was founded even before our theatre, and continues to be a cornerstone of our mission. Each year we train hundreds of performers of all ages in all aspects of stagecraft, from acting, to singing, to dancing, to improv and more.

We offer classes, camps, productions, and whatever other educational opportunities we can schedule with the very best professional educators we can get our hands on. Class sizes are small, so we can offer the individual attention necessary to help performers thrive.
