What’s APAC: 

Astoria Performing Arts Center (APAC), a not-for-profit organization, was founded in 2001 with a mission to bring high quality theater to Astoria, and to support local youth and senior citizens.

On its mainstage, APAC produces revivals and premieres of plays and musicals, and APAC also develops new works through readings and workshops. Its flexible theater space changes with each production. To date, APAC has received 21 New York Innovative Theatre Award nominations and 4 wins (Children of Eden & Ragtime), as well as an Off-Off Broadway Theatre Review Award for Outstanding Production of a Musical (Is There Life After High School?). I can tell you my girl friend went to see their latest production, Blood Brothers, 3 times in just 2 weeks. Their productions are that good.

In addition to producing really ambitious shows, APAC offers free community programs for children and senior citizens. With only 10% of their overall budget coming from box office sales, APAC’s work depends on the generosity of grantors, friends and community members!

These events are a great opportunity for people to meet other people who value arts and culture in Astoria. If this is the first you’ve heard of APAC, but want to get involved, you can get to know the APAC staff, and mix & mingle with other creative Astorians, and us- the WHA family!
