Kayla Lindsay stood on the stage in the former Kalispell Senior Center building and immediately knew that it was the beginning to a new journey in her life, one that would hopefully create lasting change for the Kalispell community.

It had been a lark, visiting the building now that it was up for sale, but as a licensed realtor with an extensive background in theater, Lindsay saw the listing as a potential spot for a future performing arts center in the county’s most populated city.

It would be a place for valley residents of all ages, but especially for kids and teens in Kalispell who need a productive place to go.


“I stood on that little, tiny stage, and I just saw this vision of this space being alive and cathartic and involved and in action,” Lindsay said.
