Without the generosity of The Midland Theatre family and friends, we would not be what we are today. There are a number of ways you can be a part of something very special here at The Midland Theatre.
Missoula Children's Theatre presents Blackbeard The Pirate
What starts as a lazy day at the beach quickly turns into mystery and adventure when the search for Blackbeard’s treasure begins! Tales both past and present launch a group of beach bums to action in search of untold riches. A cast of colorful characters begins to reveal the secrets of Blackbeard’s amazing treasure. Can we trust a group of crabby crabs or melodious mermaids? Do the scary seaweed creatures or savvy sailors know where “X” marks the spot? Will the precocious parrots or cantankerous crocodiles lead the way? And just who is Jolly Roger, and how does he know Sam the Clam? Most important of all, where have Blackbeard and his crew hidden their legendary treasure? Grab some sunscreen, come on down to the beach, and get ready to solve the mystery of Blackbeard the Pirate!
Each summer the Missoula Children's Theatre touring production arrives at The Midland Theatre complete with costumes, scenery, props, and makeup – everything it takes to put on a play, except the cast. 60 local campers (Grades 1-12) rehearse with the MCT team throughout the week and present two public performances on The Midland Theatre's Main Stage on Saturday. This educational (and fun!) project helps participants develop skills in creativity, social interaction, goal achievement, communication, and self-esteem.AUDITION INFORMATION:

- Mime Time (grades 1-8)
People communicate with each other in many different ways. Much of that communication is done without ever needing to speak. See how isolations, illusions, key gestures, and body language are all used to tell a story.
- Marvelous Mini-Musical! (grades 1-2)
You will be amazed as your class transforms from students to performers as they learn what it takes to prepare a musical number. Bring a camera and pull up a chair because this is one musical you will not want to miss.
- Why ask Why (grades 3-5)
Actors and scientists use diverse techniques to reach solutions successfully. Students will discover that these two different approaches to problem solving are quite similar as they utilize theatre exercises to answer scientific questions.
- Acting up (grades 6-8)
Join us as we explore the basics of the acting craft. Using dynamic acting exercises, students of all skill levels participate as they learn how to prepare for performance.
