As things start to thaw outside, so does the freeze on activity at the PAC.  We may not be as busy as usual, but this March is undoubtedly shaping up to be a lot more active than last March.  As I write, North Hardin’s drama club is performing an evening of monologues, and a week later, Central Hardin’s drama club will be presenting two one-acts.  These shows are the first for these organizations in over a year.  Then close on their heels, Allegro Dance Theatre returns to the PAC with Matilda, Jr.

In addition to these performances, there are two great opportunities this month for students to get on stage again.  Youth Theatre of Hardin County is holding the last of their audition workshops for students 6th through 12th grade in preparation for The Addams Family this summer.  And Missoula Children Theatre (MCT) will be casting students 1st through 8th grade when they return to the PAC with Sleeping Beauty.  Due to COVID, MCT’s casting process will be a little different this time around.  Instead of in-person auditions, we’ll be asking parents to register their students for participation later this month.

These performances and performance opportunities follow strict COVID guidelines, and audience capacity is severely limited, so go to The right now and get your tickets before they’re gone, sign up for MCT before it’s too late, and learn more about everything coming up at the PAC at

Yes, the snow is melting, the sun is shining, and the future for performing arts in Hardin County is starting to look brighter.

This month the PAC Student Spotlight recognizes North Hardin High School’s Zander Mack who just finished performing at the PAC with their drama club, is part of their track team, and is looking forward to a career in journalism.
