St. Joseph booth funds theater camp

STP ST. JoesFor about 20 years, the Parents’ Club from St. Joseph Catholic School in Chehalis has been dishing up plates of spaghetti to hungry bike riders.

Their STP spaghetti booth, located in the food court, is one of the school’s major fundraisers.

The money raised pays for an incredible week-long residency with the Missoula Children’s Theater, a traveling performing arts theater camp. Students at the school work with the MCT for one week, developing creativity, social and communication skills, and self-esteem through drama—culminating in a full-scale musical performance.

Several of their past MCT musicals have been performed at Corbet Theater.

The funds raised through the spaghetti booth last summer enabled St. Joseph’s students to learn and perform the musical Hansel and Gretel during the Missoula Children’s Theatre residency this past March.
