The audition for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of BEAUTY LOU AND THE COUNTRY BEAST will be held on Monday, June 26, at 10:00 am inside the historic Peoples Bank Theatre at 222 Putnam Street in Marietta. 

There are roles for those students entering first grade through twelfth grade. Approximately 50-60 local students will be cast to appear in the show with the MCT Tour Actor/Director. Up to four students will be cast as Assistant Directors. 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 minutes after the audition.

This is a group audition, so no advance preparation is necessary (but a smile never hurts!). Students should just be ready to come and have a good time! 

The rehearsal schedule inside the Peoples Bank Theatre auditorium is as follows:

  • This first rehearsal will take place Monday, June 26, from 12:15 pm through 2:15 pm.
  • Tuesday through Thursday, rehearsals will take place from 10:00 am to 2:15 pm, with a 15-minute break at noon.
  • The Friday dress rehearsal will take place from 10:00 am to 2:15 pm, with a 15-minute break at 1:00 pm. The cast will need to return to the theatre approximately 60 to 90 minutes before the 7:00 pm showtime to get into full makeup and costume.

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 and be available for all scheduled performances. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be distributed at the conclusion of the audition. Cast members scheduled for the full 4 hours and 15 minutes will be asked to bring a sack lunch, dinner, or snack to be eaten during the 15-minute break between sessions. 

The performance will be held on Friday, June 30, at 7:00 pm and will be presented at Peoples Bank Theatre.

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 residency in Marietta is made possible in part by Marietta Community Foundation.
