Join us for a whirlwind week of theatre camp when the Missoula Children's Theatre comes to town in their red truck with their own unique spin on the Peter Pan story. The week will include rehearsals, theatre workshops, crafts, and related activities. All participants should bring a sack lunch and snack daily.

When Captain Hook sends his right-hand man Smee on a quest to capture Peter Pan, it’s seemingly business as usual…at first. Little does Hook realize what fantastic adventures await him and his pirate posse in their search for the elusive Peter Pan. Mistaken identities, ever-morphing clouds, a classy crocodile, some very lost boys, and a fickle shadow all add to the mayhem. Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Darling embark on a quest of their own and find themselves trekking everywhere from Hawaii to the North Pole in search of their three missing children. With help from the earth-friendly Neverlanders, exotic Neverland creatures, and faithful Tinker Bell, the Darling children are found, disputes are ultimately resolved, and everyone – including Captain Hook – finds a place where they truly belong.

The Missoula Children's Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre, has been touring extensively for more than 40 years now from Montana to Japan, and will visit nearly 1,200 communities this year with up to 44 teams of Tour Actor/Directors. A tour team arrives in a given town with a set, lights,costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play...except the cast. The team holds  auditions on the first day of camp and casts 50-60 local students to perform in the production. The show is rehearsed throughout the week and two public performances are presented on Friday. All MCT shows are original adaptations of classic children’s stories and fairytales . . . a twist on the classic stories that you know and love. Creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills and self-esteem are all characteristics that are attained through the participation in this unique, educational project. MCT's mission is the development of lifeskills in children through participation in the performing arts.

The Greatest Show Performing Arts Camp

Students in this one-of-a-kind weeklong program will get to create their own “Greatest Show!”  Taking inspiration from The Greatest Showman, as well as hit pop, rock and hip-hop musicals like Hamilton, School of Rock, and Dear Evan Hansen, students will incorporate their favorite songs right into their musical mashup. Their confidence will soar as they receive training in acting, singing, and dancing, (with an emphasis on pop and hip hop).  This program is designed with our more experienced performers in mind. It is recommended that students have some stage experience with dance, singing and/or acting.

Their “Greatest Show" will celebrate differences, make the impossible come true, and show the world, THIS IS ME!  Kids will have a blast learning music and choreography that is contemporary and cool during the hot summer days. Older students in this session will have the opportunity to assist their teaching artists with choreography and staging.

Kids in this one-week program get to sing, dance, act, and create! Every child gets their own chance to shine! This camp is the perfect introduction to performance.

These classes are an excellent place for beginners to get their feet wet. No experience is necessary. There will be a voluntary audition on the first day to determine solos and speaking parts.

Students will perform an original musical revue featuring songs from classic Broadway shows and movie musicals like Annie, Oliver, & Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music to the latest hits like Wicked, School Of Rock, Disney on Broadway, Newsies, Matilda, and more. Our professional teaching artists create a fun and inclusive community where all students feel supported and confident. On the last day, kids will perform their original show for friends and family!
