Missoula Children’s Theatre
The Missoula Children’s Theatre returns to the Methow Valley this month for performances featuring local school kids.
This year’s presentation, sponsored by Methow Arts, will be “Hercules,” a musical adaptation based on the mythical Greek hero.
Auditions to take part in the production are scheduled for Monday, Nov. 6, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at the Methow Elementary School Cub gym. Rehearsals will start that day and continue through Friday, Nov. 10. Performances will be on Saturday, Nov. 11, at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. at the elementary school.
Tickets are $8 for adults, $3 for students ages 6-17, and free for those 5 and younger. A limited number of free tickets are available to clients of The Cove and Room One, at their offices.
The cast will include more than 50 local students. Auditions are open to all students in grades 1-12. No preparation is needed. Not all students will be cast in parts. There is a $25 residency fee for those cast in the production. Scholarships are available, contact Methow Arts for information.
Actors must commit to all rehearsals and performances otherwise they should not audition. Not all actors will need to rehearse every day; rehearsal schedule depends on roles.
