The Rochester Association of Performing Arts (RAPA) branches into three opportunities to better serve the Rochester community.
- Professional Theatre -- In the restructure of RAPA over the last several years, Jim Vollertsen (RAPA's CEO/President) has assembled a team of professional directors, designers, and actors to mount some of Rochester's finest theatrical productions. Under Vollertsen's leadership, RAPA continues to grow and expand each year with major Broadway style musical productions and events on the Kodak Center stage and in the Rochester community.
- RAPA Family Theatre -- In 2014, with the closing of the long-standing and well respected Rochester Children Theatre, the RAPA Team recognized the need in the Rochester community for a new yearly series of shows to serve children and their families. RAPA Family Theatre was born with a professional troupe of adult and youth actors to offer a high quality, affordable style of entertainment while fostering communication, enrichment, positive values and an awareness of classic stories to a diverse Rochester audience.
- School for Performing Arts -- Since 1978 RAPA's School for Performing Arts has trained countless students in music, acting, and dance. Many of the students in RAPA’s educational program have performed on Broadway, tours and in feature films. Others have gone on to prestigious performing arts colleges and conservatories. Still others have become playwrights, directors and founders of Community theatre groups.
