Co-Owner Lisa Cane meets with Broadway Movers & Shakers


PALM HARBOR — Lisa Nicole Cane, a performing arts teacher from Palm Harbor, got a chance this summer to do something she’s never done.

Cane was one of eight lucky educators chosen from across the United States to travel to New York City to work one-on-one with some of Broadway’s greats.

“It was incredible to learn directly from some of the best in Broadway how to better serve my students and community,” she said.

Cane, who co-founded the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Academy with her mother, Sandra Faulkner, 11 years ago, received a Freddie G Award and an all-expense-paid trip to attend the 10th annual Freddie G Fellowship in New York on July 10-13. The award was given during the Junior Theater Festival, the largest children’s theater festival in the world held annually in Atlanta. Cane has attended the festival with her students for the past 10 years.       click here to read  full article.

Tampa Bay Performing Arts Academy established the W.E.S. College Scholarship in honor of two students, Weston and Erin Shelby Wright who started in the first year of the program and remained in the program until they aged out at High School graduation.  Their dedication to the arts prompted owners, Lisa Cane & Sandy Faulkner to create a college scholarship in their name for students who have been dedicated to the performing arts.  Each year a high school senior will be awarded up to $1000.

The 2019 Scholarship was Awarded to Evangeline Gerach who graduated from Clearwater High School and who was active in many Musical Theater Programs both inside and outside of school.
