Megan Greenlee Potts
Artistic Director PAC Youth Theater

Youth Theater

Featuring students from Highlands School, Summit Charter, Blue Ridge and Home School the Youth Theater provides these young actors with an experience they never could have imagined.  These productions are "adult" theater in that they are provided a play that has been performed by "serious actors" and not a "child's play" where in which the actors have a few lines in a stage play with little backstage requirements.  These plays provide the youth students with training in all aspects of theater from acting to production to lighting to stage design and music.  These productions have everything that full-scale theater productions have except one thing, no adults.  The entire stage effort is by these young theater goers and the results of their efforts as can be seen in past performances has been superb.  This season will be guided once  by Megan Greenlee Potts.
