Meet Dominic Corcoran, an 8th grader at PALCS, and an avid performer. Dominic and his older sister, Sofia, were born in Philadelphia and now reside in Delaware County. Growing up, Dominic was a very precocious child, reading and entertaining at a very young age. Dominic fell in love with the theater after seeing The Lion King on Broadway when he was 4 years old. “He has always enjoyed performing, acting and singing, as well as drawing and writing,” his mother, Trisha, explains. Dominic’s inspiration to draw and write came from simple stories such as the Captain Underpants series, with its simple but creative illustrations, and memorable characters and story lines.
We are excited to announce that we are now accepting Center for Performing and Fine Arts applications for the 2019-2020 school year!
