2018 - 2019 Performing Arts Education

The Saint Joseph Performing Arts Association brings the world’s finest actors, musicians, and dancers to the historic Missouri Theatre. But when PAA brings the performers to the classroom, learning takes center stage. We know arts education teaches creative thinking, problem solving, and teamwork. It’s no easy assignment. Our Arts Education program helps develop young minds prepare for life in the 21st century.

Missoula Children’s Theatre

This popular, tried and true theatre residency has been a PAA experience since the 1980’s. Auditions are called on Monday for students, K – 12, and by Saturday a full scale musical production is produced by a professional actor and a director with over 50 local students. Three theatre style workshops are held during the week with varying topics. Missoula Children’s Theatre Residency’s mission fosters creativity and enhances innate capabilities in individuals all over the world by providing access to community-driven performing arts experiences. The organization strives to transcend any barriers such as language, culture, financial resources, and unique needs, to transform lives by actively engaging people in the arts.

Blackbeard the Pirate – Tickets available for purchase now!

Blackbeard the Pirate will be presented Saturday, November 3 at 3:00 pm AND 5:30 pm. 

What starts as a lazy day at the beach, quickly turns into mystery and adventure when the search for Blackbeard’s treasure begins! Tales both past and present launch a group of Beach Bums to action in search of untold riches. Before our tale is told, a cast of colorful characters begin to reveal the secrets of Blackbeard’s amazing treasure. Can we trust a group of crabby Crabs or melodious Mermaids? Do the scary Seaweed Creatures or savvy Sailors know where “X” marks the spot? Will the precocious Parrots or cantankerous Crocodiles lead the way? And just who is Jolly Rodger and how does he know Sam the Clam!? Most of all, where has Blackbeard and his crew hidden their legendary treasure?
