MET Operas continue to be added to our schedule.

Highlands Youth Theater

Without your generous support our work to provide you with the arts would not be possible, especially during this trying year. COVID19 has thrown huge roadblocks into our plan but your help we have found new media delivery avenues such as the drive-In and live Sstreaming, and new safety protocols have kept the show going.  Thank you all.

Join PAC as a member and get benefits including advance ticket sales and discounts.
