Blumenthal Performing Arts

Blumenthal Performing Arts

Blumenthal Performing Arts (BPA) is a non-profit organization that operates six theaters on three campuses in uptown Charlotte. Our mission is to present the best in the performing arts and in partnership with others, share and employ the arts as a major catalyst to strengthen education, build community cohesiveness and advance economic growth.

BPA’s Education Department strives to enhance relationships with community organizations, schools, and individuals throughout the Central Carolinas. Through a variety of educational and enrichment programs, we seek to bring the performing arts to a diverse population within our extended community. Several of these initiatives include: increasing arts access and education throughout the region through weekday matinees for school groups, supporting and celebrating our area performing arts educators with professional development and discount tickets through the Arts Educator Network, and diving into meaningful conversations with Community Cues.

We would love to connect with you. If you would like more information about our BPA Education programs, please e-mail
