Back by popular demand, Warren Scott Friedman returns for his fourth encore at PAC’s 2018 Summer Theatre Program. Friedman brings more than 25 years of experience in musical theatre direction to PAC’s Summer Workshops, elevating the students’ exposure to a nationally known director.
“PAC is a trailblazer for summer theatre programs in the region and I am so pleased to be a part of this program. I love helping young children discover and nurture their inner thespian” said Friedman.
Joining Friedman as Music Director is Eliomar Nascimento, Voice Instructor at PAC for over 10 years and a former faculty member for the Young Artists Vocal Program at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute in Lenox.
“My goal is for the students to come out of the workshops with an authentic theater experience,” said Nascimento. “During the workshop they will learn how to connect their voices to the lyrics and to convey the emotion of a song.”
“We believe that introducing children to theater at an early age provides countless benefits – encouraging creativity and self-confidence, building links to our histories and cultures, while also allowing for fun and exploration,” said PAC Executive Director, Mary Opanasets.
