Frank C. Shattuck P.A.T.H.S. Program

The Frank C. Shattuck Performing Arts Touch the Hearts of Students (P.A.T.H.S.) program works annually with a group of underserved middle or high school students to actively engage them with the arts. Through this program, the Center helps students remove themselves from unhealthy patterns they are caught in by offering them life changing moments and access to world-class, live Broadway experiences. Students are introduced to character building themes, community awareness and new art forms as they are led through hands-on workshops, engagement activities and interaction with the touring cast, teaching artists and Center staff. Past projects have included “Changed for Good” based on the theme of self-discovery in Wicked, “Raise Your Voice” a song-writing project inspired by Once that encouraged students to chase their dreams and “La Vie Boheme” in connection with Rent which promoted acceptance and respect.


2021-22 P.A.T.H.S. Program - "Pride In My Heart"

During this three-month project, students from Kaukauna High School will explore the themes of self-love and positive body image through the musical Hairspray. Students will attend a performance of Hairspray and study the costuming and clothing of the 60s. Then they will be guided through repurposing a piece of clothing of their own into something new to show-off in a program culmination fashion show.
