The audition for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of Peter and Wendy will be held on Oct. 3 at the Sayre Theatre. There are roles for those students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
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.
There is a $20 fee per child that is payable on the second evening of the residency (after casting has been announced). Scholarships are available for those who may have difficulty meeting the participation fee. No child will be turned away for inability to pay the participation fee. Contact the Bradford County Regional Arts Council (BCRAC) at (570) 268-ARTS for details.
The Walmart Foundation, the United Way of Bradford County, the Bradford County Regional Arts Council, 6Bit Software, Hudock-Moyer and the Phykitt Family sponsor the Missoula Children’s Theatre Residency in Sayre.
Rehearsals will be conducted every day from 4to 8 p.m. at the Sayre Theatre. 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 4 1/2 hours of rehearsal will be asked to bring a bagged lunch, dinner or snack.
The performances will be held on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and will be presented in the Guthrie Performing Arts Center at the Sayre Theatre. All those cast must be available for all scheduled performances.
