Welcome to 3sPA

We're the National Youth Theater award-winning company in Bergen County, NJ

Winner of 4 awards and 8 additional nominations for our 2016 Summer Youth Theater Collaborative production of In The Heights!

We are sad to report that due to large-scale renovations, the high school auditorium will be unavailable to us this Summer. Over these many months, we have been searching to find another venue for our program and performances throughout the County, but without success. Therefore, sadly, the Collaborative will not go on this Summer. However, we will be back next Summer!

On a positive note, we have been negotiating with a new venue for performance space during the school year. We are also seeking permanent rehearsal/instruction space which we hope to have in place by the Fall. This will allow 3sPA to run programing, classes and workshops throughout the year. We will keep you apprised of all exciting developments.

Of course we will advise when we hear from the National Youth Theater Awards in August!!

We're celebrating our 5th Anniversary!

What we believe with all our heart

Nothing is more rewarding than witnessing children and young adults explore and pursue their dreams. Stage Scene & Song Performing Arts  is committed to allowing children to explore all the creative and  practical facets of the theater and performance industry, wherein they  can thrive by the virtues of their individual talents, develop  leadership skills, experience the thrill of achievement, and have the  confidence to know that, with respect and collaboration, they can create  living art from nothing.

The Performing Arts is one of the most  creative and collaborative endeavors a person can take part in. It is  the perfect playground to inspire individuality and self-worth in  youngsters while still fostering a mutual respect for peers, a  tremendous sense of community and camaraderie, and an appreciation for  contribution. Stage Scene & Song's founders, Ellyn Essig, Argine  Safari, and Frank Avellino, have a long history of working with young  people who have gone on to successful careers on the stages of NYC,  Philadelphia, and Boston, from regional theaters to Broadway.  Their  combined talents and dedication provide a tremendous force which can  inspire your child to find his or her place and secure their dreams.

Stage Scene & Song Performing Arts is a 501(c)(3) non profit company.

"Frank Avellino directed the  production of Sweeney Todd that made me want to be an actor when I was  15. It changed my life. So I was thrilled to find out, upon working with  him, that he is one of the most insightful, passionate, nurturing,  supportive, and intelligent professional artists out there."
