TREASURE ISLAND Auditions

Auditions will be held for the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT)

musical production of TREASURE ISLAND Monday, FEBRUARY

27th at the Amherst Middle School Cafeteria from 4:15pm to

6:15pm. All those auditioning should arrive at 4:00 and plan to

stay for the full two hours. Some of those cast in the show will be

asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the auditions.

The year is 1782 and the American War for Revolution is in its last
days. Young Jim Hawkins, a mischievous lad, lives with his Mother
and six Sisters in a seaside village on the coast of Maine. Longing
for adventure, Jim comes under the hypnotic spell of the legendary pirate,
Long John Silver. While waiting tables in the family Inn, Jim finds a treasure map and, with
the villainous Silver as his seeming mentor, sails uncharted seas with only the ragged map and a flock of Gulls as guides. Always up for adventure, Jim’s Ruffian friends say farewell to their Village parents and serve as cabin boys for Silver and his band of hilarious (although unsavory) Pirate types. Once on the island, nights are sleepless as true colors are revealed in our hero’s quest for the proverbial happy ending. Then – at last – the treasure is found and hand in hand we’re homeward bound. TREASURE ISLAND – it’ll shiver your timbers!

Students from Kindergarten to 12thgrade are encouraged to audition. Assistant Directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week, and to take on essential backstage responsibilities. There are 50-60 roles available, with parts in every age group. This is a group audition, and no advance preparation is necessary–though a smile always helps! There is a $55 Registration Fee due at the audition for all those who are cast—additional siblings $30 (fee waivers are available).

The Missoula Children’s Theatre touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup. The MCT Tour Actor/Directors will conduct rehearsals throughout the week from 4:00-8:30 Monday, February 27th – Friday, March 3rd. Not everyone will need to be present at every rehearsal.

TREASURE ISLAND will be presented on Saturday, March 4th at 1:30 pm and 4:00 pm at Crocker Farm Elementary School. Tickets are $8 for adults and

$5 for students under 18 and seniors.
