Experience PPAC is a statewide education initiative that was launched during the 2019-2020 season at the Providence Performing Arts Center. This program enables 10th grade students from across Rhode Island to attend matinee performances of select touring Broadway productions with their high school at no cost, with busing provided. Due to COVID-19, we were challenged to re-imagine this program, presenting pre-recorded titles on our virtual viewing platform and limited in-person experiences for students and a parent/guardian but we are BACK, live and in-person, for 2022-2023 school year.


Working in close partnership with each school district, Experience PPAC supports the core curriculum work that teachers and students are doing in the classroom, bringing it to life through this experiential learning opportunity. Show specific study guides will be provided to registrants prior to attending their selected performance so that they may engage with the educational material, creative concepts, and lessons before the show. Additionally, post-show talk backs with the cast and crew will be offered as an added learning experience when available.


** Tickets and busing to Experience PPAC performances are FREE for registered schools; these tickets are not available to the public. This program is an Education/Outreach offering for 10th grade students in the state of Rhode Island and their teachers/chaperones only.


Registration will close at 5:00pm on Friday, January 13, 2023.
