Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre company, comes to town once more with the sets, lights, costumes, props, and makeup to tell the story of Rapunzel… all they need is you! This unique international touring project will cast 50-60 local students, rehearse, and present a final, fully-staged production of Rapunzel in just under a week.
AUDITIONS | Auditions will be held for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of Rapunzel from 3:30pm to 5:30pm on Monday, October 24 at the Weinberg Center. No advance preparation or reservation is necessary. Local students ages 6-18 are encouraged to audition. Those auditioning should arrive at 3:30pm and plan to stay for the full two hours. Some of the cast members may be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the audition.
CASTING | Approximately 50-60 roles are available for local students. There is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play.
REHEARSALS | Most students will rehearse approximately 4.5 hours each day, October 24-28, after school. Although not all cast members will be needed at every session, everyone who auditions 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 4.5 hours of rehearsal will be asked to bring a lunch, dinner, or snack.
PERFORMANCE | The final performance will be held on Saturday, October 29 at 3:00pm at the Weinberg Center. The students in the cast will be called for a dress rehearsal before the performance that day. All those cast must be available for the final performance.
ABOUT THE SHOW | It’s out of the tower and on the run as a zany cast of friends and foes help Rapunzel’s harrowing escape from the towering imprisonment of Madame Gothel. Add a dash of French flair and a pinch of personal triumph and friendship for an original musical adaptation you won’t soon forget!
