Pentacle began developing its educational programs for academic institutions in 1988, expanding its services to include the performing arts community’s youngest members. Emerging out of this early educational work, Behind the Scenes was developed in 2003.

Over these 14 years, we have seen how the program expands horizons for numerous students in creative and professional development.
