PACA Presents are theatrical performances that are directed and performed by seasoned actors and directors. We are always welcoming new performers into this distinguished group. If you are interested in performing or directing with us, please talk with either Mark or Margo about your qualifications, come to an audition, or show us some clips of your work. Our board makes the final determination whether a show will be presented in the following year’s line-up.
