“Enriching Education through The Arts”
Who We Are
Performing Arts for Kids PAK is a 501c3 organization that is dedicated to giving children opportunities to experience The Arts at the Hylton Performing Arts Center. We began in 2013 by using funds that were raised by the Regency Arts Group to support a group of approximately a thousand children from Prince William County Schools attending a modified presentation of The Nutcracker by the Manassas Ballet. Our service to the children was so rewarding and our tireless efforts stimulated continued growth so that in 2015 PAK wrote its bylaws and became a not-for-profit corporation. Working collaboratively with The Hylton Performing Arts Center and Prince William County Schools SPARK program we are able to sponsor and/or co-sponsor programs such as Quinn Tango and Colin and offer scholarships to Technical Boot Camp and the Youth Orchestra of Prince William. Our Mission Statement says it all – PAK supports the arts in Prince William County and surrounding communities by engaging students in creative experiences through collaboration with the Hylton Performing Arts Center. Since 2013 we have supported over ten thousand children’s attendance at professional performances at The Hylton Performing Arts Center. PAK was named Outstanding Arts Organization for Prince William County in 2016.
