Fall 2017

The Addams Family (7 – 12 grade in the 2017-2018 school year)
featuring an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.

Classes

Classes offered by PAA are divided by skill level or by grade level dependent upon the subject matter and taking into consideration the physical and learning capabilities of the student.  As our student population grows in age and ability we will continue to add new levels of classes to provide additional challenges and skill level opportunities. As a guide, 1A is a class for an older group of students or a more advanced skill set.  1B classes are for our younger students or students who are learning the fundamentals of a skill set.
