Dozens of volunteers, both on stage and behind the scenes, present a year-round season of four plays and a musical at Theatre Atchison. In June and July, a summer theatre camp gives youth the chance to participate in “Summerstage.”
For the art-minded, the Muchnic Art Gallery offers monthly displays of art by regional and national artists in a spectacular Queen Anne-style mansion. It is administered by the Atchison Art Association

Live Musical performances take place throughout the year, organized by the Atchison Musical Arts Society. Three times a year, professional, classically-oriented musicians, dancers or singers from around the world perform under the sponsorship of the Atchison Community Concerts Association.
The Benedictine College/Atchison Community Orchestra and the Riverbend Concert Choir draw on the talents of adult and youth musicians and singers from the Atchison, St. Joseph and Leavenworth areas. Summer sounds is a free concert series that showcases local and regional acts every Tuesday evening in June in the 500 block of the Atchison Pedestrian Mall.
