LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION! Welcome to Sierra School of Performing Arts (SSPA). Our school started with a vision to create a school that would give children and adults in northern Nevada the opportunity to perform, sing, act, dance and improvise. Since 2005, we have mounted full-scale productions, summer camps and individual classes. Our organization strives to provide outstanding and innovative performances along with exceptional educational and outreach programs.
In 2014, Sierra School of Performing Arts celebrated the 50th anniversary of the award-winning musical Fiddler on the Roof with an incredible production in August at the Hawkins Outdoor Amphitheater at Bartley Ranch in Reno. Directed by Janet Lazarus, the production was performed before more than 2,500 audience members, some of whom hailed the show as "one of the best community theater performances ever done in Reno."
