Peoples Bank Theatre is excited to welcome Missoula Children’s Theatre for a summer production of Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs. Performances are scheduled for Saturday, July 28 at 3 p.m. and 5:30.
A young princess named Show White finds herself in peril when her step-mother, the Queen, is told by her Magic Mirror that the princess is fairer than she! Aided by her two Henchmen and a band of evil Bats, the Queen plots to get rid of Snow White. Snow White escapes from the Queen and from the Black Forest Creatures with help from Witless the Woodsman, and finds a home with the Seven Dwarfs. When the Queen learns of Snow White’s whereabouts, she attempts to poison Snow White. But, the Queen’s evil plans are thwarted when Snow White’s fearless Forest Friends, her father King Backwards, the Seven Dwarfs and the Prince come to her rescue. Experience the unique twist the Missoula Children’s Theatre puts on this classic fairy tale!
Auditions for Snow White will be Monday, July 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Students entering 1st grade through 12th grade are encouraged to audition. Approximately 50-60 local students will be cast to appear in the show. (Please note: 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.
Due to time constraints, late-comers and anyone missing the initial audition may not be considered in the casting of the show.
Most students in the production will rehearse daily 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. 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 4½ hours of rehearsal will be asked to bring a sack lunch or snack.
Performances will be Saturday, July 28 at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on the stage of Peoples Bank Theatre. Tickets: Adults $12 / Children $8. Admission proceeds directly support this program.
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!
