The Rossland Light Opera Players along with Missoula Children’s Theatre are excited to announce auditions for a Spring Production of Snow White. The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) is the United States’ largest touring children’s theatre group which has been touring extensively for 40 years, traveling from Montana to Japan. A tour team arrives in town with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play…except the cast. We audition on Monday and by Saturday the show is ready for the stage!
The audition for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of Snow White will be held on Monday, April 29th at 3:30pm at the Webster Elementary School gym. There are roles for those students currently in Kindergarten through Grade 12! Approximately 50-60 students will be cast to appear in the show with the MCT Tour Actor/Directors. (Please note that this is an audition, not all students will be cast.) Students wishing to audition must arrive by 3:15pm and stay for the entire two-hour audition. The first rehearsal begins approximately 15-30 minutes after the audition.
This is a group audition – no advance preparation is necessary, but a smile never hurts. Students should just be ready to come and have a good time!
Rehearsals will be conducted every day from 3:30pm to 8:00pm at the Charles Bailey Theatre in Trail. Although not all cast members will be needed at every session, those auditioning must have a clear schedule for the entire week and if selected, be able to attend all rehearsals required for their role. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be distributed at the conclusion of the audition. Cast members scheduled for the full 4½ hours of rehearsal (this will be mostly older children) will be asked to bring a sack lunch, dinner or snack.
The performances will be held on Saturday, May 4th at 2:30pm and 7:00pm will be presented at the Charles Bailey Theatre. The students in the cast will be called for dress rehearsal before the performance that day. All those cast must be available for all scheduled performances.
The Missoula Children’s Theatre is a non-profit organization based in Missoula, Montana. This coming year more than 65,000 cast members across the globe will take to the stage to the delight and applause of their families, friends, community, neighbors and teachers!
