Get into the act! The Schauer School of the Arts offers classes for youth in a variety of disciplines, including improvisation, theater basics, dance for actors, and audition technique. Through camps, workshops, classes, and performances, we frequently partner with other performing arts groups such as Missoula Children's Theatre and First Stage Children's Theater.
The School of the Arts produces an annual Schauer Rising Stars Production. Students ages 7 to 18 audition to become a member of the cast or crew and have their talents showcased as part of our Schooltime Matinee and Family Series.
Schauer Rising Stars 2021
Schauer Rising Stars has sadly decided to cancel our March 2021 production of Seussical Jr. due to continuing concerns related to Covid-19. The health and safety of our staff, families, and community are top priority, in addition to our desire to provide our community with theater experiences that are meaningful and extraordinary. It has become increasingly clear that concerns and guidelines regarding Covid-19 are going to extend into late winter and spring, and we don't foresee being able to stage a major production without compromising the quality of our students' experiences, as well as the ability to share that experience with as many family members as possible.
Rising Stars plans to return for the 2021–2022 School Year, and our Rising Stars production team can't wait for the time to come! We are not able to confirm which show we will be doing next year, and will be sure to let you know as soon as we can.
This has been a very heavy-hearted decision for Rising Stars, and one that took major consideration. SSA is working to offer smaller scale opportunities that are more short-term for our theater families who would still like to join us in the coming months. These classes and workshops will be offered fully in-person with all of the common Covid-19 cleaning and social distancing guidelines in place.
