Astoria Performing Arts Center

Tom served as the Artistic Director of APAC from 2008-2014.

The Astoria Performing Arts Center (APAC), a not-for-profit organization, was founded in 2001 with a mission to bring high quality theater to Astoria, Queens, and to support local youth and senior citizens. On its mainstage, APAC produces revivals of plays and musicals, and develops new works through readings and workshops. In addition to its theater space within the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, APAC's offices are located in the historic Kaufman Astoria Studios.
