PORTSMOUTH, N.H.—Partners Bank is pleased to announce its recent donation of $5,000 to the Seacoast Repertory Theatre, in support of the Theatre’s PAPA Scholarship Program for the upcoming 2020 season. This donation reflects the Bank’s ongoing annual sponsorship of the Theatre.

A nonprofit performing arts center, the Seacoast Repertory Theatre of Portsmouth, NH (The Rep), produces year-round programming and theatrical shows with its youth, teen and senior educational programs. It is also the home of the Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts (PAPA), which offers classes, workshops, camps and production opportunities for hundreds of performers of all ages.

The Rep and PAPA recognize that, although any individual can possess the talent and passion required for performance success, not all families can afford to participate in such a program. To keep costs low and ensure its programs are accessible to students of all backgrounds, The Rep offers PAPA programming scholarships to low-income families every year. The Bank’s donation will support the financial aid that is provided to the PAPA program candidates.

“The Seacoast Repertory Theatre and the Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts do a wonderful job of enriching the cultural lives of community residents,” said Partners Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. “We consider it an honor to support these organizations, since their dedicated efforts are aligned with our own community-focused initiatives.”
