Missoula Children's Theater

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 between 60 to 70 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.  

The excellence of MCT productions, along with their unique and acclaimed teaching methods, result in the development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts. For parent FAQs, visit the Missoula Children's Theatre website
