Summer means vacation, right? Not at the PAC!

No, sir. You see, not only are we helping Youth Theatre with their production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid this summer, but we are also busy prepping Disney’s Beauty & the Beast to open the new PAC Season in September.

Just look at the puppets that arrived a couple of weeks back. Our North Carolina friends, Kevin and Kerrie, crafted these enchanted objects while our costumer Allison jumped in and built Babette. Hmmm, I better get busy and make Madame La Bouche and Chip, or they’ll feel left out.

We’re so excited to get our 21st season rolling that we’re inviting you to get a head start on auditions by joining us for our Audition Workshops on Monday, June 27, and Tuesday, June 28 at 8 PM.

These workshops are your chance for some one-on-one time with the director, choreographer, and music director to get the inside track on what we’ll be looking for at the July auditions. Please register NOW for this workshop so we can better focus on the needs of each workshop participant. CLICK HERE

Speaking of July auditions, in addition to Disney’s Beauty & the Beast, we’ll hold auditions for our non-musical – Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, The Skin of Our Teeth. When it premiered on Broadway in 1942, this epic comedy-drama broke nearly every established theatrical convention of its time and paved the way for plays like Waiting for Godot and the meta-humor of folks like Mel Brooks and Monty Python. A revival of this classic is currently running at Lincoln Center with an all-black cast and has been nominated for six Tony Awards (see photos).

So in between catching some rays, you can catch us at the PAC this month at the Audition Workshop for Disney’s Beauty & the Beast on June 27  and the Audition Workshop for Thornton Wilder’s The Skin of Our Teeth on Tuesday, June 28. Pre-registration is required for both of these workshops, so go to the Auditions page on  and register NOW! CLICK HERE
