Welcome to PAC!
The arts are a vibrant and integral part of the University of Pennsylvania's culture, and The Performing Arts Council (PAC) offers you the opportunity to participate in more than 46 different student-run performance organizations. From dance to spoken word, jazz to stand-up comedy, theatre, a cappella and more, if you have interest we have an outlet! Student Performing Arts is one of the most diverse and exciting communities at Penn. With more than 60 performances a year, Penn is the perfect place to discover or fine tune your writing, directing, design, choreography, technical and of course, performance skills!
