PBA's theatre program offers a variety of exciting performances each year, ranging from new musicals to classic plays and everything in-between. These performances give all theatre students the opportunity to audition for parts, gain on-stage experience and participate in backstage work. All of our performances, unless otherwise noted, are located at our very own Fern Street Theatre (500 Fern St., West Palm Beach) in the heart of downtown West Palm Beach.

The Bard’s darkest cautionary tale warns us of the danger of greed-soaked ambition. Determined to fulfill a prophecy of greatness, Macbeth and his cunning wife embark on their quest to rule whatever the cost. "Macbeth" reflects the greatest tragedy of all -- the Fall of Man; but Shakespeare leaves us with a ray of hope with the coronation of a new virtuous king.
*Recommended for ages 14 and up; Drama
Book by James Lapine
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
One of the most acclaimed musicals of our time, “A Sunday in the Park with George” is inspired by Georges Seurat’s pointillist masterpiece “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.” This insightful and moving musical merges past and present as two artists strive to realize their artistic vision without losing the people they love. The challenging story of life and art reaffirms our need to connect past, present, and future.
