Auditions are open for students in 1st through 8th grade. Those auditioning should arrive by 10 am and plan to stay for the full two hours. The first rehearsal for those cast in parts will begin at 12:30 to 2:30 pm, and lunch will be provided. “Students do not need to prepare ahead of time for the audition” stated GTL President, Doug Nichols.

There is no cost for participation. The Missoula directors will select 50-60 local and area students for the show which will be presented on 7/26, Friday evening, and two shows on 7/27, Saturday. General admission tickets will be available in advance and at the door. The Missoula Children’s Theater touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup. MCT Tour Actor/Directors will conduct rehearsals throughout the week from 10 am to 2:30 daily, with a 30 minute break for sack lunch. Rehearsal schedules will be available on Monday after auditions.

Assistant directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week and to take on essential backstage responsibilities. Those auditioning need to have a clear schedule for the week of July 22 – 27th, and if selected for the cast, be able to attend all rehearsals required for their role.

“Not all those who audition will be cast”, stated Nichols, “and parents need to be sure their children understand that. However we encourage all interested children to be willing to try something new, and learn that sometimes we get chosen, and sometimes not.”

“The Princess and the Pea” starring local and area students will be presented at 6 pm on Friday, July 26th, and 3:30 and 6 pm on Saturday, July 27th, at the Courter Theater in Gallatin. Tickets will be sold in advance and at the door for $8.00 per seat.

A “Meet & Greet”, for adults only, with the MCT Directors will be held on Tuesday evening, July 23, at 6:00 pm at the theater. The evening will begin with a BBQ, followed by a question and answer session with the directors. Interested adults are invited to attend.
Additionally two workshops for youth will be held on Wednesday and Thursday.

“Landing the Role”, a practical workshop for anyone entering grades 9 – 12th, will be held Wednesday, July 24 at 7:00 p.m. at the Courter Theater. This workshop will teach skills that participants can use for auditions AND job interviews to help them land a leading role and a dream job.

“Put Your Best Foot Forward” a dance workshop for grades 4th – 6th. Every dance begins with a simple step, a movement that is refined to tell a story. In this workshop all ages will take that first step together to learn basic dance terminology and moves. All levels of dancers, from trained to novice, will work collectively in this workshop to create and move together.
Both workshops are FREE admission, sure to be lots of fun, so bring a friend!

The Missoula Children’s Theater residency has been made possible with funding in part by the Davis-Aulgur Foundation and the Gallatin Theatre League. If you or your business would like to be a part in sponsoring this event, please forward your donations to Gallatin Theatre League, PO Box 188, Gallatin, MO. 64640, prior to July 10th.
