Once a year, the Arts Council of Moore County brings in the Missoula Children’s Theatre to present a free week-long residency, with the goal to develop life-skills in our children through participation in the performing arts. This unique week-long residency begins with an open group audition and culminates in two public performances. Over 50 students in grades K-8 are cast and rehearsed throughout the week, learning lines, songs and choreography to perform as an ensemble in producing a full-length musical. All shows are original adaptations of children’s stories and fairy tales—a twist on the classic stories that you know and love. MCT arrives in town with scenery, costumes, props, make-up and basic lighting—everything it takes to put on a play . . . except the cast.
