Missoula Children's Theater

Blackbeard The Pirate

The Missoula Children’s Theatre presents Blackbeard the Pirate! Each year, Missoula Children’s Theatre drives a little red truck all the way from Montana to the Schauer Center. Two professional MCT tour actor/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.



Ruth A. Knoll Theater

Friday, August 11, 7:00 pm | Saturday, August 12, 2:00 pm



Monday, August 7, 10:00 am–12:00 pm

Pre-registration for the audition is recommended. The audition begins promptly at 10:00 am and no late arrivals are allowed. The group-style audition will last 90–120 minutes, facilitated by the Missoula staff members and students must participate for the full duration. Parents/caregivers are welcome to observe the audition. 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.
