Youth Activities

Register for the audition today!

An annual Shoreline Arts Festival tradition! A little red truck pulls into town with everything needed to mount a full one-hour musical…except the cast! Sixty local students are cast in a play, rehearse for a week with professional actor/directors from Missoula Children’s Theatre touring company, and perform for an audience on Saturday. On Monday they’re cast as characters, by Saturday they’ve gained character. Buy your ticket on Brown Paper Tickets today!

Hands-On Art Booth

Hands-on Art from 2017. Fish Prints!!

This summer under the Hands-On Art tent we look up at the stars! Join us for several Space- themed projects! Use your imagination to create a 3D Rocket Ship to blast off, using a tube, paper, and shiny décor. Design your own mini Alien Sculpture and give it some color! Create a view into the galaxy by using shiny pens and crayons to represent star clusters with the Telescope Constellation Drawing. Then return home by creating a water-colored Planet Earth. And what would the Hands-On Art tent be without the wonderful Gyotaku Fish Prints? Use real or rubber fish to create a colorful, painted fish to take home.
