PLAY PRODUCTION

A FULL MUSICAL IN JUST A SEMESTER!

The APAA produced a variety of KIDS, JR, and full-length productions during the year that are open to all children in the Asheville area. These productions rehearse once a week and then perform a fully produced musical at the end of the semester. All are welcome to join! 

2020 - 2021 Season Announcement

Due to COVID-19, the Asheville Performing Arts Academy is offering a limited number of classes for our 2020-2021 season. We hope that as the season goes along, we will be able to offer more community programming options. In the meantime, we invite you to learn more about our Academy and Prep programs that will be happening this fall. 

We thank you for your dedication to the arts and hope to have all of our programs up and running in our brand new space as soon as it is safe to do so!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR TO REHEARSAL?

Anything they can move around in comfortably and covers them well no matter how crazy the choreography is. Please send them in closed toe shoes like tennis shoes or dance shoes.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO HELP MY CHILD PREPARE?

Once we pass out the CD and script for the production, you can help my playing the songs over and over (until you feel like you never want to hear them again) and make sure that your child is learning their words. If your child has lines, please run the lines with them and also make sure that they are recognize the lines before their so that they know when to say them. Closer to the production we will send home information about costumes and other show details.

WILL EVERY CHILD GET A PART?

Every child will have a role whether it is a named part or a part of the ensemble. Many time those in the ensemble will have several parts and several costume changes. Every child will have plenty of stage time. Let your child know everyone can't get the part they want every time, but that all parts are important and that we will make sure tat every child has fun things to do on stage.

DO YOU NEED PARENT HELPERS?

We need a massive support team to help make this production runs smoothly. As we get closer to the production, we will send out emails for parents to help with load-in, strike, backstage, ushers, concessions, and tickets.
