Missoula Children's Theatre starts auditions Nov. 9

This year’s production, ‘Blackbeard the Pirate’

OROVILLE – The audition for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “Blackbeard the Pirate’ will be held on Monday, Nov. 9 at 3:05 in the Oroville High School Commons.

There are roles for students from Kindergarten through 12th grades. 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 the scheduled starting time and stay for the entire two-hour session. 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 3:05 p.m. to 5:05 p.m. and 5:35 p.m. to 7:35 p.m. in the Oroville High School Commons and the Oroville High School Band Room. 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 four and a half hours of rehearsal will be asked to bring a sack lunch, dinner or snack.

The performances will be held on Nov. 14, at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. and will be presented in the high school commons. 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 show in Oroville is made possible by the Oroville Booster Club.
