Auditions will be held for the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) musical production of ROBINSON CRUSOE Monday, April 7th at the Amherst Middle School Cafeteria from 4:15pm to 6:15pm. All those auditioning should arrive at 4:00 and plan to stay for the full two hours. Some of those cast in the show will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the auditions.
Join the hula dancing Chameleons and many other original characters at Friday’s Seaside Resort this April 12th when the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) and more than 50 local students present ROBINSON CRUSOE. Among the roles to be cast are Robinson Crusoe, his sole companion, a goat named Wilson, Leonard the Leopard, Friday’s Family, the Oscar Octopus Octet, a family of Goats, the very hairy Frowny-Face Tribe, and the colorful Chameleons.
Students from Kindergarten to 12th grade are encouraged to audition. Assistant Directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week, and to take on essential backstage responsibilities. There are 50-60 roles available, with parts in every age group. This is a group audition, and no advance preparation is necessary–though a smile always helps! There is a $5 Registration Fee for all those who are cast (waivers available).
The Missoula Children’s Theatre touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup. The MCT Tour Actor/Directors will conduct rehearsals throughout the week from 4:00-8:30 Monday, April 7th – Friday, April 11th. Not everyone will need to be present at every rehearsal.
ROBINSON CRUSOE will be presented on Saturday, April 12th at 1:30 pm and 4:00 pm in the Amherst Middle School Auditorium. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students under 18 and seniors.
