Summer on Stage is an unforgettable week-long summer theater experience at the Garde Arts Center with the Missoula Children’s Theatre!

Up to 60 students will rehearse for the whole week and attend a variety of workshops, then put on two performances of an original musical with the Missoula Children’s Theater, the nation’s largest touring children’s theater.  Participants will learn about many facets of theater giving them skills in presentation, confidence, self-expression and knowledge of related technical elements such as stage make-up, sound, and lighting.

Your Summer on Stage Program Coordinator is Shane Valle supported by guest teachers and Garde staff and crew in partnership with the Missoula Children’s Theatre.
