Permission letters are going home this week with local and area elementary students, featuring information about auditions for the Missoula Children's Theatre production of "The Wizard of Oz".
Auditions will be held from 4 to 6 o'clock on the afternoon of Monday, January 6th at the Gary Dickinson Performing Arts Center in Chillicothe.
The program is sponsored by the Chillicothe Area Arts Council. Students from kindergarten through the 12th grade may audition. Middle and high school students may pick up permission slips from their school's office and bring it with them to the audition.
The directors will select 50 to 60 local and area students to present TWO performances on Saturday, January 11th. The Missoula Children's Theatre touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props, and stage makeup. There is no cost to the students.
MCT Tour Actor/Directors will conduct rehearsals throughout the week from 4:00 to 8:30 each evening, with a 30 minute break for a snack or 'sack lunch'. Those auditioning will need to have a clear schedule for the week of January 6th to the 11th, and if selected for the cast, be able to attend all rehearsals required for their role.
The Missoula Children's Theatre residency has been made possible with funding from the Roger A. Browning Foundation and from the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency. For more information, contact the Chillicothe Area Arts Council at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (660)646-1173.
