We Are PAPA
Philadelphia Asian Performing Artists
We are a collective of theatre artists who seek to enhance and strengthen the presence of Asian Americans in the Philadelphia theatre community. Our goal is to provide consistent, focused training with workshops and mentorship for our members through partnerships with professional theatres and artists. As a result of sustaining and increasing the skill levels of our group, we hope to empower and retain emerging Asian American theatre artists in Philadelphia. As PAPA grows and strengthens, we aim to encourage and create peformance opportunities for PAPA members and also reflect the greater diversity of this city and its stories.
