Printer-friendly version

The Missoula Children's Theater will present "Rumplestilskin" at the Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Jan. 30 at 2 and 4:30 p.m. and District students of all ages are encouraged to audition for parts in the cast.

Auditions will take place after school at 4 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 25 at the PAC. No advance preparation is necesssary. The cast will be chosen that same night and the first rehearsal will take place that evening. Approximately 50 to 60 children will be cast.

All children cast must attend all required rehearsals. Rehearsals will be nightly from Monday to Friday along with Saturday morning.

This is an original adaption of the classic children's story. A strange, little gnome appears from here, there and everywhere. The gnome will spin your straw into gold ... for a price. If the price is too steep, you must guess his name. Join in the fun of Festival Time and help Clara guess the mischievous, little gnome's name. You will also encounter a jester, villagers, wizards, a queen, a king, knights and a band of busy bees. The heartwarming tale of mischief and friendship answers more questions than just what is his name.

Tickets are $5 for District students and $10 for adults and seniors. Tickets can be purchased online through Brown Paper Tickets or at the PAC box office the day of the shows. The seats are not reserved.

Please call Chris Cannon, co-president of the Friends of the PAC, at 608-836-9774 or the Friends of the PAC hotline at 608-886-3103 if you have questions.

Audition details and a permission slip are available on the District website. The permission slip is due on Thursday, Jan. 21. You can also get forms from your music teacher. More information is also available on the Friends of the PAC website. You can also get them from your child's music teacher. Completed forms can be mailed to Friends of the PAC, P.O. Box 620613, Middleton, WI 53562, or returned to your child's music teacher.
