Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts

Youth Programs




The Seacoast Repertory Theatre’s mission is one of empowering and inspiring the imaginations of the student, artist, audience and community. Our programming offers students the opportunity to hone theatrical, performance, and life skills including creativity, collaboration, communication and self-confidence.

The Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts was founded even before our theatre, and continues to be a cornerstone of our mission. Each year we train hundreds of performers of all ages in all aspects of stagecraft, from acting, to singing, to dancing, to improv and more.

We offer classes, camps, productions, and whatever other educational opportunities we can schedule with the very best professional educators we can get our hands on. Class sizes are small, so we can offer the individual attention necessary to help performers thrive.
