2024 Missoula Children’s Theatre: “Robin Hood”

August 5 @ 10:00 am - August 10 @ 10:00 am

Southwest Christian Elementary

The Friends of the Edgerton Public Library are excited to bring back Missoula Children’s Theater during the week of August 5 – 10, 2024! The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre. MCT will arrive with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play…except the cast. That’s where your child(ren) come in! MCT will help them learn how to put on a play over the week they are here.

Robin Hood show synopsis:

The time is simply long ago and the place is the magical, mythical Sherwood Forest. Our hero, Robin Hood, and his Merry Band of colorful characters seek the help of the Foresters, manage to waylay the Aristocrats and set out to rescue Maid Marion and Marion’s Maid. Prince John tries to stay calm as his Sheriff, guards and horsemen botch Robin’s arrest thanks to the aromatic Skunks. Wacky humor and an original score add to this fresh new look at a legendary outlaw in a legendary time.

Details:

The audition for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of Robin Hood will be held on Monday, August 5 from 10:00am-12:00pm at Southwest Christian Elementary School. There are roles for students entering 1st grade through entering 12th grade. Approximately 50-60 local students may be cast to appear in the show with the MCT Tour Actor/Directors. Up to 4 students may be cast as Assistant Directors. There is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play. Students wishing to audition must arrive by the scheduled starting time and stay for the entire two-hour session. The first rehearsal begins approximately 30-minutes after the audition, so you may want to bring a sack lunch in case your child will stay for the afternoon rehearsal.  NOTE: This means that some of the cast will have rehearsal Monday afternoon from 12:30-2:30.  

This is a group audition–no advance preparation is necessary, but a smile never hurts! Students should be ready to come and have a good time!

Rehearsals will be conducted Tuesday – Friday at 10:00am to 2:30pm at Southwest Christian Elementary.  Please meet near the stage in the gym.  Although not all cast members will be needed at every session, those auditioning must have an open schedule for the entire week, and if selected, be able to attend all rehearsals required for their role. They will also need to be available for the scheduled performances on Friday evening and Saturday morning. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be distributed at the conclusion of the audition on Monday. Cast members scheduled for the full 4 hours and 30 minutes will be asked to bring a sack lunch to be eaten during the half hour break between sessions.

The performances will be held on Friday, August 9 at 7:00 pm and Saturday, August 10 at 10:00 am, presented on the Southwest Christian Elementary Stage.
