The theater offers classes and workshops for acting, dancing, and music to various ages. The Bergen PAC has been known to have some of the greatest performers and is one of the main attractions in Englewood.

Summary of Internship

Those who want to pursue a career in stage management, event planning or anything within the theater would have a learning experience at the Bergen PAC. An internship at the Bergen PAC allows the intern a chance to experience different aspects of the theatre. Some of the intern tasks include filing as well as scanning records, stuffing envelopes with sponsor information, removing staples from papers and walking around town handing out different flyers that deal with the theatre. While filing, interns are able to read contracts and see the agreements between the theatre and different performers. Interns may occasionally be able to participate in some of the shows or events by remaining back stage, in the cabaret room or in the lobby.
