How Does PAC Benefit My Community?

PAC produces six live performances and also sponsors Montana Shakespeare in the Parks and The Missoula Children’s Theater productions each year. PAC also provides a yearly scholarship to a high school senior who intends to pursue artistic education.

The Orpheum Theatre and the Orpheum Addition are operated through PAC. They offer a quality venue for local theater productions and music / dance recitals, and may be rented by the community. Current movie selections are offered weekly and children enjoy the Summer Matinee Series at a discounted rate. They also feature a Classic Movie Series each fall and spring. The Orpheum provides jobs and is a viable business within the community.
