Missoula show this week

By Leigh Anne Butler

For over 20 years, The McCraney-Cottle Arts Council has hosted the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) in Tallassee.  MCT is in Tallassee this week presenting, King Arthur’s Quest.

Missoula Children’s Theatre is a performing arts company that travels to bring theatre to cities and towns across the Unites States. MCT provides two professional actors/directors who teach and direct a full production over five days to a cast of sixty local students with a performance at the end.

Auditions are Monday at 3:30 at Tallassee Elementary School.  Children in grades kindergarten through 12th grade may audition.  Rehearsals begin immediately after auditions on Monday.  Rehearsals will be Monday through Friday from 3:30 to 7:45 (depending on role).  The performance will be at Tallassee Elementary School on Saturday at 6:00 pm. 

“This is always a well done production and a great experience for our students,” stated Jerry Cunningham, McCraney-Cottle Arts Council executive director.

MCT’s mission is to aid in the development of life skills in children through the participation in the performing arts.  Local students will be able to experience five days of team building during twenty focused hours of rehearsals.
