The performing arts are a vital component of the Arts Department at Pacifica. We strongly encourage all students to experiment in any of the opportunities relating to creative expression LIVE, on a stage, before an audience and it is our passion to create as many opportunities for our students to do so. Pacifica students receive professional mentoring in the fields of acting for the stage, acting for the camera, dance, music, and vocal performance. Our expert instructors are not only successfully practicing their own crafts in the Los Angeles artistic community, they are master teachers inside and outside of the classroom. A Pacifica performing arts student begins their journey as a student but leaves as a peer and partner in the greater artistic community.

Whether a student has performed before or not, all experience levels have an equal place in our community. It is our belief that creativity can be successfully expressed regardless of experience given the proper guidance and a safe, nurturing environment. Our graduating students have gone on to college conservatories, professional careers, or simply more well-rounded non-arts endeavors. The goal for all graduates is the same: creative expression is a part of our DNA, so take every opportunity to share a part of yourself as you tell your story to others.

Edinburgh Fringe Festival

The triennial trip to the world's largest arts festival is a beloved tradition for theater students at Pacifica. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival attracts tens of thousands of audience members to this medieval city in the heart of Scotland every August, and Pacifica has sent three productions to Fringe since 2013. Students experience what it is like to produce and perform their own work as artistic peers on an international stage- a truly life changing experience.  Scholarships raised by the VPA Booster Club make it possible for interested cast and crew students, staff, and alumni.
