  • Our Mission Statement

    The Academy for Performing Arts is an innovative four year high school, immersing students in honors’ level academics while training in a pre-professional artistic setting within majors such as theatre, dance, or technical theatre.  The Academy fosters the discipline, integrity and passion necessary for students to succeed at the post-secondary level and as members of the performing arts community. The culmination of the program allows the students to complete their senior year by taking college-level courses and receiving college credit at Kean University.

    We need responsible, flexible actors who take this production seriously
    and conduct themselves professionally!

    • I will do my best to get you out on time every day – Please do your best to be on time every day.
    • We may need to rehearse later as we get closer to show time.
    • We may need to add Mondays, as we get closer to show time.
    • Please note the dates that you are required to be Off Book!
      If we are “working” your scene you need to be off book.

    Thank you- this is going to be FUN!!!

    Ms. Aiellos
