PHOTO GALLERY: Lights, fins, action! Behind the sea-nes at Ontario theater camp

The Missoula Children's Theatre made a stop in Ontario for the first time in two years, helping local kids put on a production of The Little Mermaid in a weeklong summer camp at the Four Rivers Cultural Center. Two Missoula instructors directed the show and workshops for the week, while local volunteers led arts and other activities.

The takeaway? Two seafaring shows under the lights of the Meyer McLean Performing Arts Theater on Saturday, July 16, plus a week of play, paints, and punchlines.
