Auditions for the Missoula Children's Theatre (MCT) production of “Sleeping Beauty,” a rock ‘n roll fable for the ages, will be held at the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Monday, Aug. 3, at 10 am … sharp. The directors will be filling up to 60 roles with children entering grades 1-12, with rehearsals to begin the same day.
The Missoula Children's Theatre touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup. MCT Tour Actor/Directors will conduct rehearsals throughout the week, Aug. 3-8, from 10 am to 2:30 pm each day. All those children who are cast, and their parents and guardians, must agree to attend rehearsals throughout the week, and to perform in two shows on Saturday.
Approximately 50-60 roles are available. They include Sleeping Beauty; Scarella; Madame Butterfly; the King; the Queen; Spot; Fairies; Trolls; Palace Attendants; and Caterpillars. No advance preparation is necessary. Assistant directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week, and to take on essential backstage responsibilities.
The Tour Actor/Directors will also offer additional theatre workshops on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after rehearsals are over. Workshop signups will be posted in the lobby during auditions. Admission to these additional workshops is a suggested donation of $5-$10.
