If you’ve ever doubted what today’s youth can accomplish, you need look no further than what 50-60 elementary and middle school students can accomplish in one week when Missoula Children’s Theatre makes their annual April pilgrimage to the PAC.
MCT hits the road every year with over three dozen “little red trucks” and visits over 1,000 communities from Montana to Japan in addition to our own.
And in every town, in less than four days of rehearsal, students perform their very own musical with full sets and costumes for families and friends.
Educators will pontificate that these students attain creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills and self-esteem through their participation in this unique, educational project.
But I can tell you from personal experience over the years that the students that spend the week here at the PAC with MCT are changed forever and will grow up to change the world.
Auditions for 1st – 8th grade students are April 8th at 4PM sharp and public performances are Friday, April 12th at 7PM and Saturday, April 13th at 2PM. Learn more about auditions and performances at our MCT dedicated web-page (https://thepac.net/robin-hood) and learn more about MCT’s organization at their website (mctinc.org).
This month the PAC Kid Spotlight shines on North Middle School student Amaya Muse-Holt. She just finished performing in Allegro Dance Theatre’s presentation of Mary Poppins, Jr. last month and this month will be performing with her middle school band at the KMEA festival as well as auditioning for Youth Theatre’s summer production of Hello Dolly. Learn more about Amaya and our other PAC Kids.
