What Is It?
Missoula Children's Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre, has been touring extensively for 45 years now from Montana to Japan, and will visit more than 1,200 communities this year with teams of Tour Actors & 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 an open audition on Monday afternoon and casts 50-60 local students to perform in the production. The show is rehearsed throughout the week and a public performance is presented on Friday night. All MCT shows are original adaptations of classic children’s stories and fairytales . . . a twist on the classic stories that you know and love. The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) of Missoula, Montana will visit Clinton County for a week-long residency during the week of November 6—10, 2017. It will be an out-of-this-world sci-fi adventure when Missoula Children's Theatre and more than 50 local students present an original musical adaptation of GULLIVER’S TRAVELS.
