Our Mission

Keenan Odenkirk as Oberon in Shakespeare's

A Midsummer Night's Dream - July , 2021.

 

SAS Performing Arts Company and Studios, Inc. has a dual mission.

The first is furthering the education and development of aspiring performers through our specific programs and competitions. The second is to introduce the broadest possible audiences to classical music, The Dramatic Arts, and American Musical Theater through our performance programs.

Our education programs are designed to cultivate and nurture aspiring performers in all areas of their artistry through intensive study sessions (Repertory Onstage Learning Event Workshops and The Maestro’s Podium).  Our faculty is made up of respected artists in their fields of expertise who will work with the participants in a one to one and masterclass setting.

SAS Performing Arts Company and Studios, Inc, is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. We are passionate in our goal to educate members of our community of all ages through live performances through our Mainstage presentations and Concert Opera events.   We continually strive to build a culturally diverse and wider audience with performances of iconic, classic, and contemporary works performed by a very special collaboration and combination of established and emerging artists.  

We are currently implementing our accessibility programs to ensure that underrepresented groups have affordable access to our shows including a fund which would allow us to set aside a block of tickets which would be free to students to attend our programs.  

Simply stated: Our mission is:

·        To produce quality performing arts programs

·        To promote, advance and further an appreciation of Classical Music, the Dramatic Arts, and American Musical theater

·        To provide educational opportunities to develop aspiring performers to study and flourish in a non-competitive idyllic setting.

·        To provide educational workshops about the performing arts to our communities.

·        To enhance the cultural life of our community.

·        to celebrate the performing arts.

We call upon all performing, creative, and technical artists, staff, board members, and every audience member who has benefited from their talent to join us to remove racism and safeguard justice in our country.
