EXCITING PLANS for 2018: We are excited to announce that this year, performers have the option to stay in Dallas, PA during Summer PATA! Performers and PATA’s designated residential staff will be staying at Nittany commons (42 Nittany Drive, Dallas, PA 18612) – beautiful apartments that are just a few minutes away from the Dallas Performing Arts Center. Room, board, meals, additional training including access to private instruction, as well as evening and weekend activities are avilable to performers who choose the overnight option.

This summer you can look forward to a brand new original musical, “North Star Alley,” with script and lyrics by Orlando R. Barone, and music by the PATA songwriting team! The PATA Leadership Program will return this year, offering 5-7 assistantships to rising high school seniors and recent high school graduates. Those accepted into the PATA Leadership Program will receive half-tuition scholarships and access to performance training and a role in the show.

PATA will continue to tailor instruction to all experience levels (beginner to advanced). Performers can sign up to be part of a dance, voice, or acting strand. All performers will receive training in all three areas, but specific instruction will be tailored to a performer’s choice of performance strand. Intensive, advanced training in one of the six performance strands is available and will be determined based on audition during the first two days of camp.Following their success last year, PATA is excited to offer special courses this year during camp. These courses include muscle physiology and healing, stretching and conditioning, creative movement, light and sound design/tech, teambuilding and creative expression of emotion through art, acting in front of the camera, character voices, and writing monologues.

Scholarship: A limited number of scholarships will be available. Performers interested must complete an application and submit an essay and talent video sample. All applications are due by March 31, 2018. Applicants must register and pay the $75 nonrefundable deposit. Click here to apply!
