An audition will be held for the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) production of Pinocchio Monday, March 7 in the Mt. Erie gym.
Anyone interested in auditioning should be there immediately after school and plan to stay for the full two hours. Also some of the older cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the audition. Roles to be cast include Pinocchio, the Blue Fairy, Jiminy Cricket, the Fox and Cat, Candlewick and Crew, Urchins, School Kids, Puppets, and Toys. Students in all grades are encouraged to audition. No advance preparation is necessary. Assistant Directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week and to take on essential backstage responsibilities. 50-60 children will be cast. If cast, the cost is $20 per child. Some scholarships are available; see Mrs. Stacey Estenson.
MCT touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props, and makeup. MCT Actor/Directors will conduct rehearsals throughout the week after school each day. Pinocchio will be presented in the gym 7pm on Friday March 11th and 2pm on Saturday March 12th. For more information, contact Silja Shjarback at 588-0866 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
