Happy New Year!  Despite all the hassles, concerns, masks, and worries about the Covid pandemic, we feel lucky to have stayed healthy, and  are grateful for a chance to have worked with and shared with several hundred youth this past year.  December ended with a youth theater class final program, 4 Gift making sessions with over 70 youth, 2 Ginger Bess concerts, and the release of the virtual Christmas show that our  teen Apollo theater students put together.  We're also remembering good times with a few summer camps and afterschool art classes, paint party sessions, a great September Melodrama, a surprisingly fun Talent show, a well done teen Halloween production and more.  A big thanks to all our grantors and all the individual donors who helped to make it all happen.  Please take a peek at our sponsor page and help us thank them.  From the state Department of Arts and Museums to United Way, some awesome individual donors  and the Brigham City Community Services grant,  we have been enabled to reach out in so many ways.  

 

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. ACTVITY DAY: On Monday, January 18 we will be hosting a fun activity highlighting  equality and friendship,  for youth ages 5 - 12.   Kids can be signed  up  for one of two session:  9:30 - 10:30 am or  11:30 am to 12:30 pm.  The activity will include a puppet craft, stories, puppet show and information about Martin Luther King Jr.   Covid safety guidelines will be followed with  limited enrollment numbers and masks  required. Pre-registration recommended.  This event is free ( $1-$2 donations welcome)  Made possible in part with help from United Way of Northern Utah.   More info and reservation information HERE


AUDITIONS  FOR TEENS: Our Annual teen production this year will be Time and Time Again,  to be directed by Annette Macfarlane.  This magical musical with a story line that is a  bit of a take off from Back to the Future has great reviews and can cast up to 20 students.  Auditions were held January 11  with a few parts still needing to be filled.  Rehearsals will be  Monday and Wednesday evenings  starting the following  Jan 18 through April 7. The show is scheduled to be on stage April 8-10 and 11th.  This is a great opportunity for teens who are looking for a chance to further develop their theater skills and have fun in the process. Masks will be required for audition and rehearsals (until the Covid situation settles down).  Feel free to call to schedule  an  audition time. 435-723-0740.

Help Us Keep

Our Boat Afloat!

 We believe good art experiences help students and adults not only learn new skills but develop their creativity, their self-confidence and their appreciation for community. We have enjoyed helping over 4500 youth a year and would like to continue to do so. While we have been able to keep a few programs going during the Covid 19 pandemic, it has been a challenge and required learning new video skills.
Teen classes require more scholarships and most virtual classes are being offered for free. We’ve also lost rent income that helped us make ends meet. We are hoping to raise $3600 to help us stay on track and KEEP  classes going. 

Please consider helping. Thanks to some really awesome people,  we are a two thirds  of the way there! 


Donate $100 or more and get your name engraved on a musical note prominently displayed in the Fine Arts Center's
