    ABOUT US

    The Athena Performing Arts initiative was launched in July of 2018 with the vision of providing  increased opportunities for learning, creative expression and civic engagement for all ages within Athens and the surrounding communities.  

    Working with the Athens City Schools Educational Foundation 501(c) 3 and volunteers from the community, the goal of the Athena Performing Arts Committee is to create a performing arts series that provides professional productions by local, national and international artists to enhance the quality of life of those in the community, expand educational opportunities, and broaden access to the performing arts.

    ARTS EDUCATION

    Arts Education is part of the vision of the Athens Performing Arts Committee. Whether in the schools or in the community our aim is to engage children, teens, and adults in the artistic process, cultivate appreciation of the performing arts, and make the performing arts a vital and integral part of school and community. 

    The goal is to invite students to view the Christmas performance each year during a matinee production, participate as “extras” in performances when possible, and develop a Performing Arts Production Program for high school students.

    LOCATION

    Due to the generosity of the Athens City School Board, performances will be held in the 760 seat auditorium in the new Athens High School.
