Twice a year (Spring & Summer) the little red truck from Missoula, Montana arrives at the Kate, and kids line up to get into the show! Kids audition on Monday and after casting is complete, the team has just 5 days to learn their lines, the choreography, and get into their costumes for two performances on Saturday. The program brings along two teaching artists who spend all week working with children to get them ready for the big show and teaching a little confidence, respect, and creativity along the way.
Missoula Children’s Theater at the Kate is generously supported by the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation.
‘On Monday, they’re cast as characters. By Saturday, they’ve GAINED CHARACTER. The kind that really counts.’
