About PAPA

Actor Paul O'Sullivan and I created this school to provide the highest quality drama education to local children and adults alike. When Paul passed away in the spring of 2012, I thought the best way to honour him as the wonderful teacher, performer and friend to the community that he truly was, was to carry on bravely. I’d love you to come and see what we built together.


The mission of The Peterborough Academy of Performing Arts is to provide the highest caliber of education in the performing arts to students of all ages and experience, so that they may achieve their fullest potential as artists, and community members.


P.A.P.A. will provide an educational environment that fosters the artistic, intellectual, and personal growth of its students and prepares them for the next level of their artistic education.


P.A.P.A. will engage renowned faculty members in many disciplines, by providing a collaborative work environment and involving them fully in the artistic and educational life of the community.


P.A.P.A. is committed to uphold the diversity of the community by fostering an environment that is inclusive, supportive, and welcoming to all.

Thank you to The Fabulous Theatre Guild for providing us with everything we needed to create 2 GREAT PAPACAMPS! Thanks to parents, councillors and mostly THESE AMAZING KIDS! Enjoy this Video showcasing the fun we share!

Improv is an excellent foundation for gaining confidence, encouraging teamwork, sharing ideas, and taking creative risks in an environment that is safe to do so. Through a series of easy to learn spontaneity games, your kids will quickly surprise you, but mostly they will surprise themselves. Improv is a skill your children will take with them and utilize, whatever path they choose.
