Missoula Auditions Set For Monday

An audition will be held for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “The Frog Prince” on Monday in the Britton-Hecla High School Choir room from 3:30-5:30 p.m.

Those auditioning should arrive at 3:30 p.m. and plan to stay for the full two hours. Some of the cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the audition.

Among the roles to be cast are three sisters – who also happen to be Princesses, two students to play the lonely Frog, Ollie the Aspen Tree, bumbling Knights, kindly Swamp Things, the well-read Alligator, fancy Flamingos, helpful Ducks, a busy Fly and the nasty Venus Fly Traps. All students in grades K-12 and any home-school students are encouraged to audition. No advance preparation is necessary. Assistant Directors will also be cast to assist with the technical aspects of the production.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup. The MCT Tour Actor/Directors will conduct rehearsals throughout the week from 3:30-8:30 p.m. each day. There will be half hour supper break and those staying for the evening session will be asked to bring a sack lunch.

Friday supper will be provided for the entire cast and crew with special thanks to Holland’s Hot Stuff, along with Terry and Pam Price. Saturday evening the cast and crew will be invited to eat free at the Masons’ Bison Chili Supper served to the public in the Arena concessions area.

In the case of inclement weather and school cancellation or early dismissal, weekly rehearsals will be moved across the street to the Masonic Temple for those that are available to participate.

“The Frog Prince” will be presented at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2-3 at the Amacher Auditorium. Saturday’s performance will follow the Masons’ Chili Feed and the lighted Christmas Parade.

Admission to each performance is a free-will donation with $5 per person a suggested contribution. Admission donations determine the continuation of the Missoula Children’s Theatre in our area.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre residency in the Britton- Hecla area is brought to Britton by the Britton Community Theatre.

This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of the Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment of the Arts with additional contributions from the South Dakota Arts Councils and Crane Group with additional community support from Horton, Inc., Britton Area Foundation, Fun After Fifty, Britton Chamber of Commerce, Thrivent Financial, Holland’s Hot Stuff and Terry and Pam Price.
