Performing Arts Patrons Association (PAPA)


The Performing Arts Patrons Association (PAPA) provides financial and volunteer support to the Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts at Pebblebrook High School, a co-educational public magnet school that nurtures and develops talented and intellectually engaged young artists for college and successful careers in dance, drama, vocal music and technical theatre.

We encourage you to volunteer your time and talents to support PAPA’s efforts. Volunteering is very easy and rewarding with PAPA. There are many different areas from which to choose that will suit your time restraints, strengths, and desires, and it’s a wonderful way to help stay in touch with what’s going on throughout the year.

To become involved with PAPA in a leadership position fill out the Committee Chair Application or sign up to help out with a committee by filling out the Volunteer Committee Form. Opportunities to volunteer are available that do not require the commitment of becoming a Committee Chair or being a member of a Committee.  Those opportunities will be made available as they come up per committee and will be communicated through our Parent Facebook group and email communications.

For questions contact PAPA by emailing them at

Student Meal Fee: One of the largest things that PAPA does to help support or CCCEPA students throughout the entire year is to serve them meals during long tech days and on show nights following a school day. This is for every show associated with the program: vocal & dance concerts, all drama productions, all musical productions, and specialty performance such as ComPAny and more. All students (cast and crew) associated with a production are included in our meal hospitality. To help offset the cost of the meals we ask that each student voluntarily contribute $25.  We ask for this    meal fee only once per year. We are offering an easy and convenient way of paying the fee online by clicking on the button below.  Thank you!
