THE PASA COMPANY is designed to be an advanced professional training and production program for performers desiring to seriously pursue careers in musical theatre and film/stage acting. You do not need to already be a professional actor but you must be serious about developing a professional technique to maximize the use of your talent. The training you receive must be consistent with the level of performance skill you wish to attain.
COMPANY members will develop advanced performance techniques including vocal performance, acting and audition skills. Productions do not take the place of professional training and you will become a more confident and dynamic performer as a member of the PASA COMPANY! Acceptance is through audition only! (13-19 years old)
PASA COMPANY Jr. – The same dynamic productions and training with material appropriate for younger performers. Acceptance is through audition only!
(7-12 years old)
Cost: $700 annual membership fee (payment plans available)
PASA COMPANY productions will include full-length musicals and short films. You must be a COMPANY member to audition for these productions. No additional production fees are required. Costumes are included and no additional production performance fees are required. (Dance shoes and personal attire not included).
PASA will choose traditional Broadway productions and new works based upon the makeup of the COMPANY so all members have as much a time on stage as possible. Company members will participate in a short film during the year and receive a copy of the film. The Company and The Company Jr. productions will be separate although casting may overlap the groups depending on the characters required. Company members will also be cast in the ensemble numbers of other PASA productions where appropriate.
COMPANY members receive a 10% discount on PASA classes, intensives and workshops. COMPANY members also receive a group discount on tickets for PASA productions.
Special training opportunities and professional career guidance seminars will be offered to COMPANY members during the year at no extra charge! (1 per semester and 1 summer)
