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.
