Missoula Children's Theatre


"The Tortoise and the Hare"

Calling all young actors and actresses! Missoula Children’s Theatre will be back again for its Summer 2017 workshop. Up to 60 young actors and actresses will audition, practice, and put on a performance for the public - all in one week!  

There is no fee to audition, cast members will pay for workshop once roles are assigned on the afternoon of July 24. 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 | Open to students K-12  (Registration fee of $60 ($54 for Members) to be paid after auditions.)


Free Auditions:  Mon, Jul 24, 10 am - 12 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.
