The Missoula Children's Theatre presents Hansel & Gretel, adapted by Jim Caron with music and lyrics by Michael McGill and Jim Caron. Each year, Missoula Children's Theatre drives a little red truck all the way from Montana to the Schauer Center. Two professional MCT tour actors/directors hold public auditions, casting local school-age children in an hour-long original musical. The cast rehearses for a week and then performs a fully staged and costumed show.

Audition Information: Pre-registration for the audition is recommended. The audition begins promptly at 10:00 am and no one will be admitted to the audition after 10:00 am. Group style audition lasts 90-120 minutes, facilitated by the Missoula staff members. Families may stay to watch the audition. No advance preparation for the audition is necessary. Approximately 50-60 roles are available for local students and casting will be announced immediately following the audition. Auditionees should bring a bag lunch, so they are able to begin rehearsing that afternoon if they are cast in the show.

Rehearsals: Following the audition and casting on Monday, August 8, an exact rehearsal schedule for each participant will be distributed. The possible rehearsal times that your child may be required to attend are Monday, August 8—Friday, August 12 between 10:00 am and 2:15 pm. Students cast in the show must be available for all rehearsals and performances—no exceptions.

Performances: Friday, August 12, 7:00 pm | Saturday, August 13, 2:00 pm
