Missoula Children’s Theatre coming to the Methow
Missoula Children’s Theatre will once again bring the stage to children in the Methow Valley, but in a different format this year.
Methow Arts has brought the Missoula Children’s Theatre to the Methow Valley for the past 30 years. Past performances include “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “The Tortoise and the Hare,” and “Blackbeard the Pirate.”
COVID-19 restrictions won’t allow the group to do its traditional musical theater production, but instead, Methow Arts is bringing Missoula Children’s Theatre staff to the area to do a series of workshops.
The workshops will be offered the week of Nov. 8 and will include topics such as “Acting 101,” “Improv,” “Creative Dramatics,” “Mime” and others.
Workshops are offered to first- through sixth-grade students in the Methow Valley School District, including the REACH program. Space is limited and registration is required.
The program is free to participating students and is funded by Methow Arts, the Public School Funding Alliance, Winthrop Kiwanis, the Chewuch Inn and other sponsors.
