Thanks for supporting your child’s interest in Missoula Children’s Theatre!
Auditions are open to all area students in kindergarten through 8th grade who are able to attend evening rehearsals all week from November 26-30, and who can commit to three performances on November 30, including two during the day.
Participation in children's theatre is FREE, thanks to sponsors, Midwest Theater members, 4th String Fund donors, and grant funding.
Approximately 50-60 local students will be cast to appear in the show with the MCT Tour Actor/Director. There is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play.With the amazing turn outs for auditions, we are dividing auditions by birth year to ensure more children get an opportunity to perform. Children born during an ODD year may audition for this fall production (Black Beard the Pirate).
Please review this agreement form with your child and submit it to us.
Doors will open for auditions at 3:30 on Nov 26. Please check in with staff in the lobby no later than 3:50 p.m. to receive a sticker that will show you have registered.
Thanks again for supporting you child's exploration of the arts.
Sincerely,Billy Estes, Executive Director, The Midwest Theater
