DISCOVER: New Musicals
An annual presentation of staged readings of new short or one‐act musicals. Selected musicals are produced as staged readings with casts of professional actors, predominantly of Asian-American heritage, through open auditions.
Classic productions or collaborations with other theatre companies that include casts of predominantly Asian-American performers, providing our community an opportunity to be seen in roles they might otherwise not be considered for. Past productions have included "Oliver!", "Hello Dolly!", "Carousel", and "Oklahoma!", as well as a collaboration with Prospect Theatre in a production of "Honor."
P.S. 124 Theatre Club
An essential component of NAAP’s mission is education in several forms. Training opportunities enable artists to hone or continue to hone their craft as practicing artists. In the arts, it is essential that artists continue to improve and nurture their skills and sensibilities.
Both programs are made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
