The Bay Colony Performing Arts Academy was founded in 1999  in Westwood, Massachusetts as a series of musical theatre-focused summer programs for students in Grades K-12. Since then, our programs have expanded to offer musical theatre competition teams for our advanced students, as well as classes and private lessons in voice, dance, acting, piano, music appreciation, and puppetry.

In 2004, the program began offering classes at the Orpheum Theatre in Foxboro where it expanded to serve the Foxboro community while continuing to offer year-round classes at our Westwood location.

In the Spring of 2014, our Westwood Campus became our Norwood Campus at the beautiful, and newly-renovated Norwood Theatre!

In January 2016, the Bay Colony Performing Arts Academy moved into its new home at 34 School Street in Foxboro! Our new facilities are equipped with two fully-functioning dance studios for group classes as well as two private voice and piano studios for private lessons!
