Children's Book Club and Performance Series

QPAC believes that it's never too early to jumpstart a child's imagination and teach kids that reading and live theater is about pleasure! The Children's Book Club and Performance Series, was created as a way to enhance in-school literary programs while providing cultural and artistic opportunities to elementary and middle school students for whom a lack of arts programming is evident. Additionally, our weekend programs allow for parents to enjoy live theater along-side the children in their lives! QPAC is committed to providing the community with the services and resources they deserve while continuing to make sure that more individuals, families and children discover the benefits from making the arts a central part of their lives.

Sponsored in part by Council Members Eric Ulrich and Mark Weprin
