Creativity is both a learned skill and an innate talent. It’s a quality that many people tap into to help themselves succeed and it can be nurtured in many ways, from physical to the performing arts. SIS Bank is therefore pleased to announce its recent donation of $5,000 to the Seacoast Repertory Theatre, in sponsorship of the Theatre’s 2019 PAPA Scholarship Program.
The Seacoast Repertory Theatre of Portsmouth, NH (also known as “The Rep”) is a nonprofit performing arts center that produces year-round programming and theatrical shows with its youth, teen and senior educational programs. It is also the home of the Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts (PAPA) which offers classes, workshops, camps and production opportunities for hundreds of performers of all ages.
The Rep and PAPA recognize that talent and passion can come from any individual, and that not all families can afford to participate in such a program. In order to keep costs low and ensure its programs are accessible to students of every background, The Rep offers PAPA programming scholarships to low-income families every year. SIS’ donation will support the financial aid that is provided to the PAPA program candidates.
“We’re proud to continue our support of the Seacoast Repertory Theatre and the Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts,” said SIS Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. “Both organizations do so much good for the Portsmouth community, helping our youth and adults to realize their performing dreams as well as creating a rich culture of arts that the entire region can enjoy.”
