PACA is a 501c3 nonprofit theatre that relies
on your support to continue making the arts happen.

tax-deductible donation today.

Want to Rent Our Space?

PACA is looking for people who want to use our music room to give music lessons, or voice lessons to students interested in learning how to play an instrument. We are putting the final touches on a soundproof room which is perfect for scheduled lessons. We are looking for as many people teaching the widest array of instruments possible.
