2015 - 2016 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.
A little red truck with Montana license plates pulls into Saint Joseph twice a year with everything it takes to mount a full-scale musical production, except the cast. On Monday, approximately 60 local children from our community are cast and by Saturday, we have a musical performance.
For Aladdin, it’s not easy to find a magic lamp but it’s even harder to get a date!
It’s a swirling sandstorm of famous Arabian Tales from Ali Baba to Scheherazade – and even Sinbad the Sailor – as Aladdin journeys to find a magic lamp in a Cave of (not-so-great) Wonders.
Along his way Aladdin seeks answers and advice from wise Genies, a powerful Sultan, and his own Mother to find a way to meet the Princess. However, even with the lamp in hand, Aladdin will have to learn that it takes more than a wish to make a good impression.
Full of memorable characters, from lost Penguins to talking Palm Trees, this is an adventure worthy of 1001 laughs.
