Children from last year’s Missoula Children’s Theatre performance
The casting call for the Missoula Children's Theatre (MCT) production of The Secret Garden will be held on July 14 at 10:00 AM at the Rio Grande Theatre. There are roles for students entering 1st grade through 12th grade. Approximately 50-60 local students will be cast to appear in the show with the MCT Tour Actor/Director. There is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play. Students wishing to audition must arrive by 10 a.m. and stay for the entire two-hour session until 12 o’clock noon. 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 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM at the Rio Grande Theatre at 211 North Main St. 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 will be asked to bring a sack lunch, dinner or snack.
A registration fee of $60 is required from all students cast in the play; discounts for multiple students from one family and need-based scholarships are available upon request. The registration fee is due by Tuesday, July 15 at 9 a.m. for all students cast in the play.
The performances will be held on July 18th at 7:00 pm and July 19th at 2:00 pm and will be presented at the Rio Grande 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! The MCT residency in Las Cruces is made possible by Doña Ana Arts Council with help from New Mexico Arts, Price’s Creameries and the Progress Club of Las Cruces.
