‘Pied Piper’ auditions draw children to the Liberty

Try out for Missoula Children’s Theatre production July 16

Published on July 10, 2018 2:56PM

ASTORIA — The audition for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “The Pied Piper” will be held 10 a.m. Monday, July 16, at the Liberty Theatre.

There are roles for kids entering first grade during the summer tour through 12th grade. Approximately 50 to 60 local students will be cast to appear in the show with the Theatre Tour actor/director. 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 two-hour session. The first rehearsal begins approximately 15 minutes after the audition.

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

Rehearsals will be conducted every day, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Liberty Theatre. 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 four 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 performances will take place 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Saturday, July 21, at the Liberty.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre is a nonprofit 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 Astoria is made possible by the Liberty Volunteer Guild.
