Kids programing at the Lincoln City Cultural Center is kicking into high gear, with theater, music and art options available throughout August.
On Monday, Aug. 7, the center will host auditions for “Tortoise and the Hare,” the latest production from the touring Missoula Children’s Theatre.
All students entering 1st through 12th grade are invited to take part in the week-long drama workshops, which will culminate with two performances at 3 and 7 pm on Saturday, Aug. 12.
The program is free for local kids and also welcomes visitors for a $50 registration fee.
Auditions begin at 10 am sharp on Monday, Aug. 7. For more information, call the center at 541-994-9994.
Meanwhile, registration is open for a summer music camp led by rock violinist Aaron Meyer on Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 22 and 23. From 9 am to 4 pm each day, Meyer will lead children aged 8 to 14 in creating, performing and recording their own music. The grand finale will be a show at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, Aug. 23.
