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.


2022-23 P.A.T.H.S. Program - "Reflections"

During this five-week project, students from Appleton Central will immerse themselves in the themes of Disney’s Aladdin and recognizing their own self worth through practices taught by Catalpa Health. Students will have the opportunity to attend a performance of the musical Disney’s Aladdin, and visit The Fire to create a mosaic mirror that will be displayed for the community for the duration of the musical.
