As public school budgets across New York City are slashed, the Professional Performing Arts School community already feels the impact. With an annual school budget currently unable to support our yearly Mainstage Musical, this valuable PPAS tradition is at risk of being canceled. In order to save the PPAS Mainstage musical, donation-based support is our only remaining funding source.

This year's musical hopes to be Jonathan Larson's classic RENT, and will be directed by Kyle Pleasant, with musical direction by Arri Simon. This year's musical is being produced by Evolution Arts and Jeff Statile. The performance dates are currently scheduled for March 8-11, 2023.

Your donation will go DIRECTLY towards the production costs of PPAS' mainstage musical production of RENT.

***All funds raised that surpass our goal of $50k will go directly toward FUTURE PPAS Mainstage musical productions! ***

Your Tax Deductible* Donation will help to...

  • design and build a set.
  • costume an actor.
  • hire a professional musician.
  • change the batteries in a microphone.
  • hang professional lighting instruments.
  • purchase new strings for Roger's guitar.
  • Fix Maureen's Audio gear!

....Support the return of the PPAS Mainstage Musical!

We thank you for your consideration and hope that, with support like yours, we can reach our funding goal, and bring back a fully-produced musical to the PPAS Mainstage!!

"No Day But Today" ...
