Performing Arts Center of MetroWest, Amazing Things Arts Center Partnering For Summer Youth Theatre Program

FRAMINGHAM – The Performing Arts Center of MetroWest (PAC)  is partnering with Amazing Things Arts Center for its 2018 Summer Music Theater program.

“It is exciting to have two arts and cultural organizations come together to bring quality, affordable arts offerings to the MetroWest community,” says PAC Executive Director, Mary Opanasets. “It creates a collaborative synergy that benefits the community.”

Workshops for kids entering grades 2-8 in Fall 2018 include Legally Blonde Jr. from July 16 to July 27, Annie Jr. from July 30 to August 10 and High School Musical 2 Jr. from August 13 to 24.

Each workshop will conclude with a fully-staged, ticketed production at Amazing Things that will be open to the public. Discounts are
available for participating in more than one workshop, early registration and registration by siblings. Limited scholarships and internships are also available.

Young performers will have fun all summer long: building sets and scenery, learning from their peers, and making lasting friendships. They will have the opportunity to rehearse and perform at the Amazing Things Arts Center, an intimate, yet professional space, centrally located in the heart of downtown Framingham.

“We’re excited to host PAC’s summer program in downtown Framingham – giving kids a chance to participate in musical theater is an ‘Amazing’ way to spend the summer,” said Ellen Sturgis, Executive Director of Amazing Things Arts Center.

Leading the Summer Theater Program is Warren Scott Friedman, a nationally known Off Broadway and youth theater director with over 25 years of experience. Joining Friedman as music director is Eliomar Nascimento, voice instructor at PAC for more than a decade, with considerable experience in performing and teaching youth and adults.

This program is made possible in part by generous sponsorships from the Framingham Country Club Charitable Foundation and the Mutual One Charitable Foundation.

For more than 35 years, the Performing Arts Center of MetroWest has been providing high-quality, professional instruction in music, theater, and dance for students of all ages.

The Amazing Things Arts Center is a membership based non-profit organization that hosts live music, comedy and theater throughout the year, and produces four art galleries featuring MetroWest artists in different neighborhoods of Framingham.
