Performing Arts Boosters


Who We Are

The Sussex Academy Performing Arts Booster Club (PABC) is a nonprofit organization of parents, students, faculty, alumni, and community members committed to promoting excellence in Sussex Academy’s music and theatre programs.

What We Do

We voluntarily help to enrich the experience and foster the success of our student performers through a variety of fundraisers and activities during the school year. Funds raised help support our choir, band, theatre productions and other school-wide initiatives.

Membership Information

If you have a passion for Band, Choir, or Drama, and ensuring the success of Sussex Academy students that participate in these activities, please come join us!  Dues are your time, ideas, & energy!  There are several opportunities for volunteerism throughout the school year and into summer!  It is so much fun to spend time with these talented kids!
