Calling all young actors and actresses! Missoula Children’s Theatre will be back again for its Spring 2018 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 the afternoon of Monday, February 5. Those auditioning should plan to stay for the full two hours. Some cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the auditions.  Note - There is not pre-registration available.  Plan to register on the first day, after your child is cast in a role.

$60 | $54 Members  (Registration fee of $60 ($54 for Members) to be paid after auditions.)

About the Performance:

With his ship wrecked and his trusty computer on the fritz, brave explorer Gulliver finds himself lost in space with nothing but an Invisible Force to guide him! While transporting from world to world, under the control of the Maniacal Scientist, Gulliver discovers fighting aliens, arrogant Horse Leaders of the foolish Yahoos, larger-than-life royalty (in more ways than one) and robots – all who need just as much help from Gulliver as Gulliver needs from them! Watch as this sci-fi spin of the timeless tale of Gulliver's Travels will take you out-of-this world.

"This was one of the most AMAZING opportunities that I have had the pleasure to witness my two daughters experience! The directors worked with all the kids for ONLY ONE week and at the end of the ONLY 5 days, they put on the show which was very entertaining and displayed much talent!  I would recommend this theatrical performing arts to all children if all ages!!"   -Anita H.

 

Free Auditions:  Mon, February 5 at 3:45 PM | Jackson Conference Center

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.
