All Ages! All Stages!
The Central Alabama Performing Arts Guild is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the performing arts in our community. Our annual events have included a Radio Play, which is aired not only locally, but throughout the United States; a summertime Stage Production that includes a cast and crew of intergenerational participants; and a Jazz Festival unique to this area, featuring instrumentalists and vocalists both local and from across Central Alabama. CAPAGuild also recently hosted our first annual Puppet Play and our first annual Poetry Slam was in November, 2019. We currently offer Literary Guild meetings and free Improv Comedy Games on the third Saturday of every month.
The Central Alabama Performing Arts Guild exists to create and promote a varied and vibrant performing arts community in Central Alabama. Our goal is to provide performance opportunities in music, theater and dance to Central Alabama citizens of all ages and all stages of life. We inspire children and students by exposing them to a wide array of the performing arts and providing instruction and guidance in these forms of expression. We inspire adults by helping to create communities of performing artists who share their passions and enthusiasm for creative artistic endeavor. Through these efforts, we are creating a brighter future filled with new and expanding opportunities for local performance artists and their audiences.
The Central Alabama Performing Arts Guild serves members of the community who wish to explore and share their gifts and talents through the performing arts. We do this by presenting a wide variety of music, theater and dance experiences to the public and inviting community participation as performers and audience members. We bring artists together to create mutual inspiration and encouragement. We bring communities together to share the appreciation of creative expression and acknowledge its contribution to overall quality of life.
CAPAGuild offers free workshops, rehearsals, and instructional lessons to participants in any of our events to help prepare any involved for performance readiness. We keep a busy calendar and are proud to afford creative expression opportunities to all in our community, young and old alike.
If you are interested in the performing arts – or are a patron of the arts – we would love to make your acquaintance and invite you to join us. Membership is free! As we continue to grow, we include new members and new ideas, creating new opportunities for the talents within our community. We would love to hear from you!
