Coming to a theater near you!

Missoula Children's Theater came to town today in preparations of producing a "Snow White" play this weekend. From MCT's website:
The Missoula Children's Theatre International Tour Project is the largest touring children's theatre program in the U.S. The concept is based on a week-long residency during which a team of two staff Tour Actor/Directors develop and produce a full-scale musical with 50-60 local children as cast members. Auditions, intensive rehearsals, workshops and finished performances for the public are all part of the residency. The plays are updated versions of classic fairy tales and children's stories such as Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and Rumpelstiltskin. Each production comes complete with professionally designed scenery, costumes, props and makeup, as well as sound and lighting equipment. This season MCT will send out 27 teams to put on approximately 900 residencies, which include over 55,000 young performers in all 50 states, Canada, Europe, South America and Asia.
Sarah went this morning, auditioned and got a part. It's not a big part (which she really didn't want, I don't think), but she got a part. She will have intensive rehearsals this week, but come Friday/Saturday, she will be in a 'professional' production.

When I stated this out with "Coming to a theater near you!", I meant if you are in the Stillwater area :-)
