Jacksonville Performing Arts Company is the first Boutique Theater in the united states. JPA created the boutique theater to be a more immersive experience for their patrons, a lovely family atmosphere for the entire family.  We are here to build confidence, self esteem and friendship within our casts . We do not believe in the third tree to the right, but that every actor gets their moment to shine on stage. This has proven a huge asset in the growth of our thespians and the growth within our community. We may be smaller but we are mighty! 


JPAC strongly encourages family fun, and embraces the beauty of the Arts.  We love to participate with audience members and love meeting new artists to join us. Our patrons are incredibly important to us , because without you, we would not be here.


JPAC believes in giving back to our community through the Arts. We have donated $12,833 to the  USO of North Carolina, Jacksonville Center. We have been able to do this through your support and patronage . Thank you !

We are also very honored to be to partnered with the City of JACKSONVILLE RECREATION & PARKS for their" SUMMER CULTURAL ART " series. Holding performances at the Jacksonville Amphitheater .  A Community show by the community for the community FREE OF CHARGE to include local dance companies and other amazing talent right here in our own home town.

We are also Community Partners with One World Montessori School ,Clyde Erwin Elementary Magnet School, The New River YMCA & One Place. 

Our JPAC Youth Performer division has grown in leaps and bounds and we are expanding!!!We now run a School of the Arts programs for ages 7-15 years, Each program is designed for a specific age group so that each child has their moment to shine and build confidence on stage.    We also added  our TEEN OUTREACH program that is a FREE program for our teens. We offer a safe and supportive environment for our teens to build their self esteem and make everlasting friendships. We produce a full production after 10- 12  week rehearsal schedule . It has so far proven to be incredibly successful and beneficial. Last year we gave 60 performers the chance to perform on stage in 3 fabulous productions. We also work with many actors on the spectrum and with disabilities. We have seen huge benefits and incredible growth with these programs.

Masterclasses & Workshops - We are outsourcing some of the top instructors in their fields to come and share their knowledge and expertise with us. We are so excited about all the networking possibilities this will give to  our community to further their dreams and  education.

Margaret Pollard Foundation - Last year we personally sponsored 15 youth performers  and was able to sponsor another 45 with outside sponsors. We have so many children that would love the chance to become part of the arts programs that do not have the funds or ability to attend private classes. Please click on our " Sponsor a Child ' tab to assist us in reaching more youth performers and giving them the gift of confidence, self esteem and above all friendship!!  We thank you in advance!!!
