About Las Positas College Performing Arts The Las Positas College Performing Arts program is designed to provide knowledge, training, and practical experience in a variety of areas which can be used in continuing participation and appreciation of theater, music, dance, and communication studies throughout life. We offer a nurturing and personalized educational environment for all students who wish to pursue their passions in performance. YOU can help keep Theater Arts possible for our students. Your ticket purchase can provide valuable scholarships and program funds for keeping our theater program healthy, so that we can provide theatrical opportunities for our students and communities. With the cancellation of our last three shows, due to Covid-19, our program has lost potential revenue of more than $10,000; coupled with Statewide budget cuts to education projected to impact colleges for the next 5 years, we are desperate for your help... and every little bit helps.
We are hoping to ensure our next season is as powerful and professional as our students and community deserve. Keep the arts alive, one ticket at a time!
