The Montana Actors’ Theatre believes that artistic and creative experiences for youth are essential to the health and vitality of our community. For the past 20+ years, thousands of children in Havre and along the Hi-Line have participated in our youth programs.

Introducing MAT Youth Workshops!

Workshops for middle and high school aged youth

Mondays and Wednesdays 4pm-6pm

Each month will focus on a different theatre aspect and will be led by various MAT staff and volunteers. During the months when we do not have workshops scheduled, there will still be plenty of opportunity to participate in MAT. Those months will be focused on specific shows and performances.

Cost is $50/month and includes all 8 sessions in the month.

Additional children in the family only $35/month.

Space is limited.

To request a scholarship, please email Angela.

KidsMAT is a summer-time educational performing arts camp for children grades K-8 in which participants learn in an environment that encourages creative growth through theatre performance, management, and production. KidsMAT takes theatre camp to a new level by encouraging kids to take part in every aspect of the creative process. Through collaboration and guidance, the kids develop the story, create the costumes, build the set, and perform the play. Camps available in Havre, Chinook, Shelby, and Rocky Boy.

For the past four summers, MAT has hired college students or recent college graduates as paid interns in our Young Professionals Program. These young adults manage and direct the KidsMAT touring children’s camps and the Youth Production. Interns gain valuable practical experience, professional development, and artistic opportunity.

2020 intern applications are closed.

You can sign up for our mailing list to ensure you get all of the updates.

The Youth Production provides middle and high school-aged students the opportunity to participate in fully-staged productions.  Participants learn every aspect of theatrical production and develop the discipline to create a polished, professional show.

The 2020 Youth Production will be The Wizard of Oz!
