Within each MCT cast, girls and boys are equal; the disabled become able; the shy experiment with bravery; the slow are rehearsed to perfection; and the gifted become part of the whole.

STUDENTS PREPARE ANYTHING FOR Our group audition is a 2-hour process at which all children who are interested in being cast must attend for the entire time. No preparation is needed. Missoula’s team of actor/directors will guide the children through the audition process with easy to follow instructions on basic movement, lines and song. At the end of the twohour audition, the cast will be announced, and each cast member will receive a rehearsal schedule for the week. We rehearse a total of 4 ½ hours each day, two-2 hour sessions with a short snack break in-between. Although not all cast members are needed at every session, those auditioning must have a clear schedule for the entire week, and if selected, be able to attend all rehearsals required for their role. WHEN ARE REHEARSALS CONDUCTED? Rehearsals will take place between 10AM-2:30PM each day. Rehearsals are 4 ½ hours each day and consist of two 2-hour blocks of time with a 1530 minute snack break between the two sessions for those cast members involved in both sessions. It’s important to note that not all cast members are involved in every rehearsal session but alternate activities will be planned for free time. Each child’s schedule for the week is dependent on the role in which they’re cast. On the following days, Tuesday – Thursday workshops will be done between 2:30PM – 3:30PM. for the arts; especially the theatre.

With our more than 37 years of touring internationally, visiting nearly 1,300 communities and working with 65,000 children annually we take our hiring practices very seriously. Each individual on our touring staff goes through an arduous process of interviews, reference checks, criminal background checks and fingerprinting – both background checks and fingerprinting are completed by a nationally recognized company. Just as we can assure that every child within our cast is safe with our staff, this same assurance is extended to the homestay families. HOW LONG ARE THE SHOWS? Each show is approximately 60-70 minutes in length – there is no intermission. HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS TO THE SHOW? The price for admission is $5 for adults/seniors and $3 for children 12 & under.
