“The program evolved into 50 students with a common goal: storytelling through theater and dance,” Noel told us. “I knew that PACK was something special…so I made the decision to sign a commercial lease for rehearsals and classes, and I also found the perfect performance venue for children’s theater: The Arts Bank on Broad & South. We rent it for our shows. Leaving Meredith was a hard decision, but ultimately the right one. It has been a longtime dream of mine to have my own space. The timing was right.”
PACK had its beginnings as a way for Noel, an actor/singer/dancer by trade, to keep her love of the theater going after having a baby and slowing down on auditioning. She pitched the idea of an after school theater club to the principal of Meredith Elementary and PACK was born.
