Once you have registered and created your own site, be sure to bookmark your site and/or the Performing Arts Legacy homepage and write down your username and password in a safe place.

Note that your username is your last name followed by your first name (followed by a number if a site of the same name has already been registered). So if you enter “John Smith,” your username will be smithjohn. The username doubles as the address of your site, i.e. “”

When you arrive at the site, you can click the “Log In” link at the top of the page in order to sign in and work on your site. Enter your username and password, then click “Log In.”

If you lose your password and need to recover it, click the “Lost Password” link below the Log In button. You will receive an email within a few minutes prompting you to click a link where you can select a new password. This link works only once, and for a limited time. Please be sure to select a password that is secure and known only to you.

When you log in to your site, you will be redirected to the homepage. From here, use the menu to navigate to different pages, or use the gray bar at the top of the screen to select from administrative options.

* If you are having trouble logging in with your username and password, you can either reset your password (click “lost password” on the login screen), or use an alternate login system: from the PAL homepage, on the right-hand side, enter your username OR email address in the login bar (screenshot below) and you will receive an email within a minute or so, containing a one-time-use-only link, which expires in ten minutes, allowing you to simply click and be logged in to the site.
