    The PABC 

    The Performing Arts Booster Club (PABC) at Sussex Academy is  excited to support our kids as they excel in the Drama, Band, and the Arts programs at our incredible school. We are a young booster club (we just turned 1!) and our first year was both successful and so much fun. We held a Rock and Roll Holiday Concert at Dogfish Head in Rehoboth which was packed to the gills, and sold delicious concessions at all the plays and band concerts. In addition, we had an amazing Talent Showcase at Arena’s down the road from school, and inspired kids to contribute to our cause through dress down days and raffles. The money we raise goes directly to fund the many expanding arts programs at SA, and we are inspired to begin our 2019-2020 season.
     
    We need all the help we can get! If you’re looking to get involved in the SA community and only have a little time here and there, consider joining us. Our hope is to gather a group who can help with special events and behind the scenes tasks. Not to fear! This will not require tons of time at all. We will appreciate whatever you can spare.

    If you are interested in coming on board, please write to us at: sussexacademyPABC@gmail.com
