Missoula Children's Theatre

To our valued Missoula Children’s Theatre Presenters,

We have been monitoring this unprecedented and rapidly-changing situation around the Coronavirus and following recommendations from health professionals and local, state and federal officials. The advice coming from all levels of health professionals is to practice “social distancing” and avoid large crowds, which can be very difficult to accomplish in a theatre environment.  And of course, we’re now experiencing school closures across the country.

In light of that, it is with heavy hearts that we are postponing the remainder of our spring tour 3/23-28 through May 11-16.  Keeping students and their families safe is always a top priority for the Missoula Children’s Theatre, and we want you to know this decision was not made lightly.

We will be working diligently to get back to each and every one of you (200+) locations to get you rescheduled into a future tour. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
 

As we navigate this challenge together, we want to convey just how much we value each and every one of you and are grateful for the trust you place in having the Missoula Children’s Theatre in your community. We look forward to our return. Stay well!

About Auditions:   An open audition allows all children within the specified age range to audition. There is no limit to the number of children who may audition and every child at the audition has an equal chance of being cast. This method allows the team the opportunity to choose the child that best fits each role from the array of children who attend the audition process. The open audition will be conducted by the two MCT Tour Actor/Directors (TADs) who will choose a cast of 50-60 children. If more than 60 children audition, not all of the children auditioning will receive a part. Casting the show will be at the sole discretion of the TADs and roles will be announced at the end of the audition. The TADs will make sure that no one is singled out while doing their best to ensure that everyone leaves with a positive feeling.

"The Emperor's New Clothes"

Calling all young actors and actresses! Missoula Children’s Theatre will be back again for its Summer 2020 acting camp. Up to 60 young actors and actresses will audition, rehearse, practice, and put on a performance for the public - all in one week!  

There is no fee to audition, cast members will pay for camp once roles are assigned on Monday, July 27, 2020 after auditions from 10 am - 12 noon. Those auditioning should plan to stay for the full two hours.

About the Performance: “Dress for success” is good advice that the Emperor takes whole-heartedly, wanting to impress new friends. But where to stop? When the clothes (and other people’s opinions) become more important than the people of the kingdom, trouble brews. To help their beloved Emperor find the way back to his heart, his true friends create an elaborate “birthday suit” for the Emperor to wear for his birthday parade celebration. The Emperor quickly and humbly learns that sometimes “less is more”!
