Some of our more recent productions include Shrek The Musical, Carrie, Monty Python’s Spamalot, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Little Women, The Little Mermaid, Legally Blonde, Hairspray and The Wedding Singer.
PRIMA is a passionate advocate of the development and growth of the performing arts in our community, offering vibrant and accessible experiences to performers and audiences alike.
We pride ourselves on offering our members the opportunity to work with leading Directors, Musical Directors, Choreographers, Production Teams and Technical Specialists,
providing a unique learning and development experience to community members of all ages, skill levels and backgrounds.
Our commitment to delivering the highest quality productions has not only seen a steady increase in our audiences, but also garnered overwhelmingly positive reviews from audiences and critics as well as industry award recognition.
We are incredibly proud of our achievements, and particularly proud of our most recent major production: Shrek The Musical in 2018.
Shrek The Musical was the highest selling PRIMA production to date and earned the Gold Palm Award for Best Lead Actor in a Musical and the Gold Palm Award for Most Awarded Production. The success of this production is a testament to the dedication and expertise of our Committee, Production Team, Cast and Crew and our continued commitment to delivering outstanding production.
In 2019 we celebrate our 15th year and we couldn’t be prouder of how far we’ve come or more excited about the plans we have to continue to grow and advocate excellence in performing arts in our community.
