Missoula Children's Theatre to Present "The Snow Queen" at Concordia's Brown Grand Theatre on Saturday
The Missoula Children's Theatre, a non-profit organization that fosters enrichment and education in children of all ages through theatre, will present "The Snow Queen" on Saturday, July 13th at 3 pm at the Brown Grand Theatre in downtown Concordia. Nineteen local area children will perform this fun-filled production that will transport audiences to a land of cold and ice but will warm the soul while doing so.
The Missoula Children’s Theatre, the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre, has been touring extensively for nearly 50 years now from Montana to Japan, and will visit nearly 1,100 communities this year with up to 44 teams of Tour Actor/Directors.
The mission of the Missoula Children's Theatre is the development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts.
A tour team arrived in Concordia this week in their "little red truck” loaded with a set, lights, costumes, props, and make-up. The team had everything it takes to put on a play, except the cast.
On Monday, July 8th, the team held an open audition and cast local students to perform in the production. Maggie Dickinson says the students have been rehearsing the show throughout the week, preparing to hold a public performance on Saturday.
All Missoula Children's Theatre shows are original adaptations of classic children’s stories and fairytales that you know and love. Griffin Baer tells KNCK News about their adaptation of "The Snow Queen."
Tickets to the show are $8 for adults and $4 for students and will be available at the door.
