Moose Jaw's Harmony Arts Program, which introduces and educates youth about the world of performing arts has had a busy summer.

They've been holding a summer day camp for kids aged 6-12, will be holding two more in August for kids of the same age and older (6-11, 12-17), and are currently taking registration for an upcoming production of The Little Mermaid Jr.

"It's a great opportunity to dabble and try to see if performing arts is your type of thing. It's relaxed, the groups are small so it feels comfortable and safe. It's a great opportunity for kids who have never done this to try it out for the first time."

Nelson says that at the summer camps they play games, learn songs, and put on a performance at the end of the week.

As for The Little Mermaid Jr. coming up in March, that will be a bigger production than the summer shows. Registration for that show is open now and classes start the second week of October. Casting for the production is in November, and the performance will take place the second weekend of March.

Nelson goes on to say that there is a parent committee as well, and they are in need of three more adults who would like to volunteer their time and help.

"We have a parent committee who are super supportive. They help us to produce the show to bring it to the stage, they make sure we have volunteers and that things are organized. They will have a meeting maybe once a month until we get about a month out from showtime, then there may be more."
