Missoula Children’s Theater will be at Mary Woodward on Monday, November 2 through Saturday, November 7. This year, MCT will be casting up to 60 Mary Woodward students, grade K-5, to perform in a full-scale musical production of “Rapunzel”. There will be two performances at Mary Woodward on Saturday, November 7 (3pm and 5:30pm). Tickets will be on sale the week before the show and available for $3 in advance and $5 at the door. A detailed registration form was sent home with your child today, containing all the information they need to participate in this enriching week long residency experience. Forms will be accepted through Oct 29 on a first come, first serve basis.  More forms are available in the office if needed, or email Jenny Herman at mwmctchair@gmail.com. Cost to participate is $45 per student, which includes 2 tickets to see the show. Auditions are on Nov 2nd immediately after school, no advanced preparation needed.

“We’d love to, but my kids are in sports and other activities!” I get it, mine are too!  It’s worth noting that there really is not another opportunity for your child to take only 6 days off from their other activities and get to participate in a full scale musical, build a show to perform on stage, and gain the life experiences they can from the MCT residency.

You do not want to miss this, get your forms turned into the office today!  For your chance to win two tickets to see the “Rapunzel” – enter our poster coloring contest, be creative while helping us advertise for the show! Pictures came home this week along with your registration form. Be creative! Color and decorate your picture and turn it into the office by October 28. A winner will be chosen at each grade level and announced during morning announcements the week of the show!

If you want to volunteer to help with this residency, we could use a few hours of help with various tasks (some at home, some at school, some the week of the residency and some in the weeks before), so please contact us. Additionally we are looking for a photographer and videographer for hire, so if you know someone who might be good at either, please have them contact Jenny Herman phone 503-307-5252 or email mwmctchair@gmail.com.
