Dedicated to serving youth in and around Porter County, Regional Performing Arts Company is a non-profit theater group that showcases young talent in its productions. Requiring students to regularly fill out roles intended for actors of all ages, RPAC helps build confidence and interpersonal skills in their young actors. All board members, directors, choreographers, and members of the production staff are unpaid professionals in their fields who proudly help make theater come alive for these participants.

2019-2020 marks Regional’s third performing season as a company, and as the programs grow so does the need for more opportunities. Not only is the board searching for volunteers who are interested in directing, managing, and guiding our performances, but also starting the process of accumulating a fund directed at acquiring and renovating a dedicated space for youth arts in the region. If you or anyone you know is interested in helping, either with your volunteer work, financially, or by donating unused space, please reach out today!
