Missoula Children's Theatre
The Missoula Children's Theatre experience is great for children ages 5 to 18 who may not have the time to devote eight weeks to rehearsal for full scale musical productions. This whirlwind week of theatre starts out with auditions (unlike any you have seen before!) on Monday, rehearsals on Tuesday through Friday and culminates in two performances on Saturday. Two touring actor/ directors from Missoula, Montana, arrive to conduct the week, complete with the set, costumes, makeup, scripts and musical score.
For more information regarding upcoming auditions, rehearsals or performances for the Missoula Children's Theatre, please contact Janey Mason with the Williamson County Parks & Recreation Department at (615)790-5719 ext. 2030.
