Auditions for Jack and the Beanstalk


Red Cloud Opera House
413 North Webster Street
Red Cloud, NE 68970
United States

Auditions for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of Jack and the Beanstalk will be held at the Red Cloud Opera House on Monday, July 31st, at 10:00 a.m. This is a group audition—no advance preparation is necessary, but a smile never hurts. Students should just be ready to come and have a good time!

There are roles for those entering 1st through 12th grades. While there is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play, approximately 50-60 local students will appear in the show. Students wishing to audition must arrive by the scheduled starting time and stay for the entire two-hour session. The first rehearsal begins approximately 15-30 minutes after the audition.

Rehearsals will be conducted July 31st to August 4th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Red Cloud Opera House. Although not all cast members will be needed at every session, those auditioning must have a clear schedule for the entire week, and if selected, be able to attend all rehearsals required for their role. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be distributed at the conclusion of the audition. Cast members scheduled for the full 4½ hours of rehearsal will be asked to bring a sack lunch, dinner or snack.

Two public performances will be held at the Red Cloud Opera House on August 4th, at 3:00 and 7:00 p.m. Students in the cast will be called for dress rehearsal before the performance that day. All those cast must be available for both performances.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre is a non-profit organization based in Missoula, Montana. This year more than 65,000 cast members across the globe will take to the stage to the delight and applause of their families, friends, community, neighbors and teachers! The residency in Red Cloud is made possible with support from Rick and Barb Kudrna, Kenny’s Lumber Center, Red Cloud Women's Chamber, Republican Valley Arts Council, Nebraska Arts Council, and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
