Educating and entertaining children through the magic of music and theater- to inspire imagination, challenge minds, and enrich a child's life.

YPAS was developed by the CAC over 25 years ago to provide live performance programs for pre-school, elementary and middle school children in the Golden Triangle and surrounding area.  Musicals, puppetry, dance and various forms of live music have been presented to thousands of students who might not otherwise have this opportunity.  The Arts Council provides curriculum-education support through study guides for each performance.

 

Details about YPAS Fall 2017-Spring 2018 will become available mid-summer.
