BWW Previews: THE WHITE PLAINS PERFORMING ARTS CENTER Fall Season
The fall season at The White Plains Performing Arts Center (WPPAC) will kick off on October 10th with an exciting re-imagination of Stephen Sondheim's classic "Sweeney Todd." Without giving away the concept, suffice to say, Artistic Director Jeremy Quinn has outdone himself in this clever and immensely creative and fresh take on a well told tale.
The WPPAC is a vital resource for dynamic cultural and educational programming in Westchester County and its surrounding communities. Each season it produces and presents critically acclaimed theatre, music, dance, family programming and special community events. The center is also committed to education of young artists and that commitment is reflected in the training and development of these young artists through multi-disciplinary study and performance.
This season will feature a full slate of first rate mainstage productions as well as a conservatory program and a classic play-reading series.
This summer WPPAC initiated a wonderful new series called: Building Broadway and it was a fantastic success. The program featured intimate conversations and performances by several of Broadway's most important leading composers, including Jeanine Tesori, Jason Robert Brown, and Martin Charnin.
According to Quinn, "WPPAC delivers a live exp erience that is immediate and visceral. As an artistic community of diverse, collaborative artists, we collectively explore the human condition while presenting vibrant, provocative material. We are a cultural institution that unites as it delights, educates as it entertains and nurtures the development of new artistry in a risk-free, safe and supportive environment."
WPPAC will follow Sweeney Todd with a Conservatory production of Legally Blonde, then a mainstage productions of The Little Mermaid.
