The Centre for Performing ARTS, Montague Regional ARTS Centre, has teamed up with TELUS Mobility to promote the Literacy through the ARTS program at the 239 Valleyfield Road facility. Parents who are interested in registering their child with an application for the program which will be offered free through a scholarship grant generously provided by TELUS, will have an opportunity to meet for a preview of the program. An explanation of the goals of this program aimed at grades 6-9 students from the eastern region will be presented, so that parents as well as students understand what is being offered for free to qualified students by an application review process by the Centre’s School for Performing ARTS.

Students will attend a weekly class on Wednesdays after school for fall, winter, and spring semesters in theatre class which will finish up with an end of the school year onstage production and performance. Classes in drama, acting, musical theatre, public speaking, research for scripts, script writing and adaptation, as well as technical skills will be taught to young students while they expand their literary skills. Each student will be able to also take a rotation in dance and music. The dance class for this age group includes the Bodies in Motion, Level 2 with hip hop, team dance, break-dance, b-boy, jazz, with foundation in ballet. All classes are offered after school, and only a small materials charge will be asked of parent’s contribution.

The Centre’s director was recently informed that an application for her “Literacy through the ARTS” proposal was accepted by TELUS Mobility.

The semester will conclude with an on stage series of performances, which will run through summer season, travel to other theatres on the Island and perform in local festivals. The hope is that this troupe will form the beginning for a full community theatre movement with the adults that will volunteer to mentor in this TELUS pilot project. Adults and seniors who wish to volunteer to help mentor students in this project are invited to attend this information session as well to learn more about the project and how you can be a vital helping hand.

Parents and students who wish to participate should attend the information meeting where registration applications will be made available to those who wish to apply at this session. Appointments for registration can be made by calling 838 (ARTS) 2787 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
