Because the Palace Cultural Arts Association’s mission includes “fostering appreciation, education and participation in the arts,” the PCAA Board of Directors and Management are committed to creating opportunities for people to experience the performing arts not just from the seat but from the stage as well. Future opportunities to participate in local Palace produced events are listed below.
