Missoula Children's Theatre is Back!

The United Methodist Church and the Clinton Arts Council invite students who have completed kindergarten through graduating seniors 2022 to try out for one of the 50 parts in the musical play "Hansel & Gretel.”  Auditions will be held on Monday, July 18, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the United Methodist Church gym. 

Auditions begin promptly at 10 a.m.  All students must stay the entire two hours with some cast members remaining until 2:30 to begin rehearsal.  "Hansel & Gretel" is being presented by Missoula (Montana) Children's Theatre with no cost for the student to participate.  No advanced preparation is required, just show up with a smile!  Remember, this is an audition and there is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play.  Students chosen for parts should be prepared to be present all week from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for rehearsals.   

The play will be presented on Saturday, July 23, at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. at the Clinton High School Performing Arts Center. Admission to the performance will be $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students.

We would love for as many of our church kiddos to participate as they can! The Holiday season is busy so I am going to give you the dates of our meetings, rehearsals and show so you can plug those into your calendars early!

Sunday, Nov 14th- 9:15am Meet upstairs in 2nd grade classroom. We will start going over music.  If your Child wants to participate, just have them come to Sunday School, parts will be assigned during that time.  We will go over songs during the Sunday School time so everybody can be ready.

 *If you know your child can attend most of the rehearsals and Musical,  but won’t be here Sunday, the 14th please let Jennifer Kiely or Gloria Stratton know so I can make sure to assign them a part and leave a CD at the office for you!

Also, we would love some parent volunteers to help out with helping kids get dressed in costumes, during rehearsals and during the service. Please let Jennifer Kiely or Gloria Stratton know this Sunday if you can help in any way!
