The Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts and Thingamajig Theatre Company are abuzz with activity as preparations are under way for an exciting summer of entertainment and fun. 

The theater stage is being transformed to accommodate the sets for “Bright Star,” “Guys and Dolls” and “The Spongebob Musical.” Costumes are being designed and coordination of our Whatchamawhozit and ThingamaWHO youth programs are coming together.

Season ticket packages and individual tickets are now available for purchase by visiting our website at pagosacenter.org and selecting “Buy Tickets” to access our ticketing website. Season packages include discounted ticket prices to all three of our Broadway in the Mountain musicals as well as our kids’ camp production of “The Music Man Kids.” Additional benefits of season tickets include attendance to our champagne openings to each show, a reserved seat option, free ticket exchanges and more.

Registration for the Whatchamawhozit Kids Camp is open through our website, pagosacenter.org. The camp is for 7- to 12-year-olds and will run weekdays from July 5 through July 15 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The camp will conclude with performances of “The Music Man Kids” on July 16 and July 17. Camp attendees will be mentored by members of our summer season cast and directed by Laura Moore.

Auditions are open for local teens to be part of the cast for “The Spongebob Musical” alongside our professional actors. This unique opportunity is free and open to 13- to 18-year-olds.
