Missoula Children's Theatre (MCT) provides a week-long residency “starring” 50-60 local students in a professionally produced and directed musical.  Two MCT actor/directors arrive with everything to produce the play.  They audition, cast and rehearse the show.  The week culminates in two community performances. 

Our mission is the development of life skills through participation in the performing arts. We provide year-round touring and our fees are dependent on region.  The week includes an open audition, intensive rehearsals, two public performances and three enrichment workshops.
