The Main Street Arts Council is pleased to present the 2021 Main Street Summer Theater Festival lineup with performances in Atwood, Colby, Goodland, Hoxie, and Quinter!
As we continue to mitigate the ongoing pandemic, we will be conducting the festival outdoors this summer, including rehearsing and performing outdoors on the beautiful plains of western Kansas! :)
All area youth ages 5-18 years are encouraged and eligible to participate FREE of charge thanks to the generosity of grant providers, previous festival proceeds, local supporters and fundraising activities.
Consider joining the MSAC today to show your support for not only the summer theater festival but all of our arts and music activities enhancing the lives of the citizens and visitors throughout northwest Kansas!
