Due to a change in Missoula Children's Theatre procedures as a result of Covid-19, students must be pre-registered for auditions this year. Pre-registration numbers will be limited. Therefore, students will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis, and we recommend signing up as soon as possible. The benefit of pre-registration is that all students who are pre-registered and audition will receive a role! 

To pre-register, fill out the Google form here or stop by the National Willa Cather Center to pick up a registration form.

The Missoula Children's Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre, has been touring extensively for more than 40 years now from Montana to Japan. This year in Red Cloud, MCT presents Sleeping Beauty...with a twistIn this musical adaptation of the classic fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty pricks her finger only to wake up five hundred years later in a rock ‘n roll dream.

A tour team will arrive the week of August 1, 2021, to hold auditions and cast local students to perform in the play.  The students will rehearse the show throughout the week, and two public performances will be held at the end of the week. Creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills and self-esteem are all characteristics that are attained through the participation in this unique, educational project.
