An audition will be held for the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) production of Gulliver’s Travels on Monday, June 12 at 10:00 a.m. at the Thelma B. Johnson Early Learning Center. Some of the cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the audition from 10:00 a.m. – noon.
Among the roles to be cast are Gulliver and his trusty computer JCN (Jason), The Giant King, Queen and Princess of Brobdingnag, the Maniacal Scientist of Lapunta and many others. Students entering 1st-12th grade are encouraged to audition. No advance preparation is necessary. Assistant Directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week and to take on essential backstage responsibilities.
The Missoula Children’s Theatre touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup. MCT Tour Actor/Directors will conduct rehearsals throughout the week of June 12-16. Rehearsals will be from 10:00 a.m – noon and 12:30-2:30 p.m.
“We are so excited to be partnering once again with Missoula Children’s Theatre!,” Alex Caudill, Executive Director of the Henderson Area Arts Alliance said. “Having worked with the program since the 1990’s, the Arts Alliance always offers a free, annual summer program for students in the Henderson area. In addition to the audition and rehearsal process, the students will be given the opportunity to stay after their rehearsals on two days to receive valuable lessons in improvisation and other theatre forms. We hope you and your family will join us!”
The final performance will be presented on Saturday, June 17 at 3:00 p.m. at the Preston Arts Center. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door. Prices are $15 for adults and $10 for children.
