The Performing Arts Center in Highlands NC

For the fourth straight year, the Martin Lipscomb Performing Arts Center (PAC) Youth Theater  will perform for audiences at the end of April.     The Youth Theater is open to all area students in grades 7 through 12.    They began rehearsals in February for this year’s play “Anne Frank and Me” by Cheri Bennett.

After almost eight weeks of learning and rehearsing, the production will open on Thursday April 28th.

Evening performances are also scheduled for April 29th and April 30th plus a Sunday matinée on May 1st.

Directed by theater veteran, Dr. Ronnie Spilton, the play takes place in real-time and involves students who are studying Anne Frank.

Classrooms, school dances, teachers, and principals are all involved when an accident takes them all back in time to WWII in France.

The Youth Theater program at the PAC is funded by the Eckerd Family Foundation, the Killian Foundation, the Rotary Club of Highlands and Cullasaja Women’s Outreach.    Through the theater program, students are exposed to art, music and dance.

The program  not only teaches techniques in acting and the technical aspects of the stage, it is an effective tool for teaching social, physical and cognitive development.    Students gain self-esteem and poise which then translates into classroom academic success.
