A message from Danny
Dear TPAC Families and Community,
I walked through the doors of TPAC when I was eight years old as a painfully shy child who loved theater but was scared of stepping out of the box. After meeting my new teacher (Samm) and my first role placement – I was hooked. Over nearly two decades, TPAC helped me find my voice, place in the world, and my passions. As a teacher at TPAC, I learned something new each week. My students have taught me how to be spontaneous, caring, and to take risks. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such an incredible group of teachers, families, and students. TPAC helped inspire me to found my non-profit in Boston, whose mission was to bring theater to students in the city who did not have access to the arts. I would not be the person I am today without the studio.
It is bittersweet to be coming up on my last days here at TPAC. As I head a new path, through my studies at Harvard University in Government with an emphasis in Social Justice, I look back on my time at TPAC with a full heart for all the experiences and connections I’ve had in this community. TPAC is truly a special place that encourages everyone to be themselves. It welcomes everyone (no matter who you are) through the door with a resounding, enthusiastic “WOO!”.
I want to thank all families, students, faculty, and staff for creating one of the most extraordinary communities I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of - I will miss you all terribly. TPAC will always have a special place in my heart.
I look forward to seeing some of you next week for some final improv fun. I will be rooting for TPAC from afar – thank you for everything!
