All April events at the PAC were cancelled due to COVID 19.

Sadly, the highly anticipated Missoula Children’s Theatre’s (MCT) annual residency had to be cancelled. We look forward to MCT’s return next April. Until then, be sure to take advantage of MCT ‘s “Playdate.”

In honor of the cancelled Volunteer Appreciation Banquet usually held in April, the PAC’ers shared the video below. We are so proud of our PAC Volunteers. 44 faithful folks worked 1,496 hours ushering, set building, brochure mailing and any other “ing” we asked of them ensuring that PAC events go off with out a hitch.
Why were the seats covered? Well, there is a bit of refurbishing happening on stage! All PAC seats were covered just before sanding began on the stage floor. The floor will be sealed and repainted and look just like new! It’s been twenty years since this happened and we believe the floor is quite happy.
