PAC Resources

This page contains resource materials for use by PAC members.  It was updated on 8/9/21.

Using This Page

When you click a link on this page, one of two things will happen.  The link’s document will either open or it will download to your computer.  Whether a document opens or downloads depends on the type of document (its filename extension) and which browser you are using.  Before a file downloads, a dialog box will appear so that you can specify where you want the file to be placed on your computer.

If the file opens, you can read it and/or download it.  To download it, locate the downward pointing arrow near the upper right corner of your screen and click it.

There are some types of files that this website will neither open nor download.  To get around this restriction the files are packaged in ZIP files, which the website will download.  After downloading, you will have to unzip the ZIP file in order to obtain the desired file inside.

Organization Documents

  • PAC bylaws, version of September 2021

Production Documents

  • PAC Production Guide, Edition of September 2022
  • Contact list. Edition of February 26, 2023.  The Production Guide refers to many job titles.  The Contact List tells you who holds each job.  For security reasons, phone numbers and email addresses are not included.  Contact information is separate from the Production Guide so the Production Guide doesn’t have to be changed every time a contact changes.

Tri-Fold Brochures

Our tri-fold brochures are to be handed out by the ushers at each PAC event.  A supply of brochures is located near each of our standard venues.  Please return any unused brochures to the storage location after each event.

For Encore Theater events, the brochures are located in a small storage room accessed from the Gallery, which is near the entrance to Encore Theater.  In the storage room look for a 3-drawer filing cabinet whose top drawer is marked, “Performing Arts Council.”

For chapel events…

When you open the form in Word, you may have to click an “Enable Editing” button near the top of the form before you can print or edit it.


Driving Directions

Think about performers driving to Riderwood while having to contend with DC traffic.  Talk about pressure!  We owe them foolproof directions so they don’t get lost and arrive late.  Here are samples.  Modify them as your needs dictate.

  • Driving Directions to Riderwood’s Encore Theater.  These directions start with the driver heading east on the beltway toward US 29.
  • Driving Directions to Riderwood’s Chapel from the beltway.
