The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) will host a free, week-long camp for first through 12th graders from June 9 to 14 at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Auditions and the camp will be held at Hickam Memorial Theater.
MCT brings performing arts opportunities to communities, most notably to kids who might not have access to them. They send out teams of touring artists, also known as tour actor/directors or TADs, who cast kids in a children’s musical, which they perform after only six days of rehearsal.
They strive to use participation in the performing arts as a vehicle to develop social skills, self-discipline, a strong work ethic, an understanding of the team concept and self-esteem.
Open auditions will run from 10 a.m. to noon June 9. Youth must be present the whole two hours. Space is limited with no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast.
The cast will be decided immediately following the auditions, and the first camp session will start at 12:30 p.m.
The camp will run the remainder of the week and end on June 14 with a production of “Blackbeard the Pirate,” at a time to be determined. The camp schedule will also be determined at a later time. Youth are encouraged to be available most of the week.
