Goal: To broaden the cultural and creative experience of every 10th grade student in the state of Rhode Island.
The Providence Performing Arts Center has launched a new statewide initiative called Experience PPAC. This initiative creates the opportunity for every 10th grade student in the state to see a select touring Broadway performance at no cost. Additionally, transportation will be provided to schools for this opportunity, making participation in the experience accessible to everyone. During the season, there will be additional Thursday matinee performances for selected touring Broadway shows just for students participating in Experience PPAC.
Working in close partnership with each school district, Experience PPAC supports the core curriculum work that teachers and students are doing in the classroom and will help bring it to life through this experiential learning opportunity. Show study guides will be provided to schools prior to their attendance of the specified performance so that they can engage in the educational material, creative concepts and lessons prior to attending.
