A tour team, made up of actors and directors, from the Missoula Children’s Theater will be visiting Terry Public Schools next week. Their visit will culminate in the student performance of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, presented Friday, March 9 in the Ray Frank Gymnasium. Performance times are 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Ticket prices are $5 for adults, $3 for students, with free admission for preschool children.
Along with a concentrated practice schedule for those performing in the play, the week-long visit from the tour team will include theatrical workshops for all students.
A two-hour audition for K-12 students will be held in the high school study hall room Monday, March 5 at 3:45 p.m. Practices will follow the audition and continue after school hours throughout the week.
The presentation is sponsored in part by the sales of sport picture buttons, a fundraising effort of elementary teachers.
The Missoula Children's Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre, has been touring extensively for 38 years from Montana to Japan, and will visit nearly 1,300 communities this year with up to 35 teams.
A tour team arrives in a given town with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up - everything it takes to put on a play ... except the cast.
All MCT shows are original adaptations of classic children’s stories and fairy tales. Also included in the residency are three enrichment workshops presented by the tour team. Creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills and self-esteem are all characteristics that are attained through the participation of this unique, educational project.
The Missoula Children's Theatre is based in Missoula, Montana, and also runs many local programs. For more information regarding the Missoula Children's Theatre, call 406.728.1911 or visit MCT online at www.mctinc.org
