2014 - 2015 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

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.

Blackbeard the Pirate

A lazy day at the beach quickly turns into mystery and adventure when the search for Blackbeard’s treasure begins! Past and present myths launch a group of Beach Bums to action in search of untold riches. Colorful characters start 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? Grab some sunscreen, come on down to the beach, and get ready to solve the mystery of Blackbeard the Pirate!
