The White Plains Performing Arts Center has worn many hats in its relatively short life; it began as a city-subsidized, community-oriented arts center offering a variety of new and touring works in 2003, morphed into a venue for costly musicals like Man of La Mancha, and was forced to truncate its 2010-11 season, which had been dedicated solely to the production of new works, by one production. Now, WPPAC is going back to the Broadway well: its 2011-12 season will consist of three family-friendly classics. It’s also continuing its Conservatory Theatre program, a resident training program for budding actors between ages 10 and 21. (JM)
