  • The Secret Garden, an original Missoula Children’s Theatre rendition, is a joyful retelling of a story of hope and celebration and all good things in life. Mistress Mary Quite Contrary embarks on a journey from India to her uncle’s home in England. Along the way she makes friends with the hilarious Canadian Geese and the colorful Giant Bugs that Rock! In time she learns to appreciate everything around her, including the Moor Animals and the helpful Fireflies. Add to that a good healthy dose of caring, and what happens? Colin, Martha, Archibald - well the whole household - begin to enjoy the return of health and happiness in a garden carefully tended…until it blossoms once more.

    Throughout its 40 year existence, the Missoula Children’s Theatre International Tour has fostered developmental life skills in more than a million kids. Just this year, we will work with 65,000 children in more than 1,200 communities in all 50 states and 17 countries. The Missoula Children’s Theatre relies on your generosity to close the gap between low tour fees and the actual cost of touring. If our program has had a positive impact on you or a family member, and you would like to help ensure this experience for future generations, please contact Development Director, Cate Sundeen at csundeen@mctinc.org.

    Camp Encore 2013 schedule and workshops

    The Midland Theatre offers educational and fun workshops that complement Missoula Children's Theatre's (MCT) weeklong residency-with a focus on nurturing and inspiring young actors in our community.

    • Midland – If These Walls could Talk

      Discover the historic roots of The Midland Theatre. This workshop takes you on an adventurous tour behind the scenes of the Midland Theatre! Be sure to dress comfortably. Grades: 1 – 12

      This workshop allows young students to use their imagination to transform a story into a play, learning the importance of focus, the development of character, and the use of pantomime. Grades: 1 – 2

      The basic tools of the actor’s trade - observation, memorization, concentration, and imagination - are presented and explored in an entertaining manner. The students participate in a variety of fun exercises, learning to apply the actor’s tools to performing and to everyday life. Grades 3 – 5

      Through a series of fun and enlightening exercises, the students are introduced to the art of acting without words, from simple body language to the techniques of creating illusions. Grades: 6 – 8
    • MCT – Let’s Makeup

      Without the support of visual image, the most talented of actors can portray only a narrow spectrum of characters. Make-up is the foundation and the most basic visual image for all performers. This participatory workshop teaches students of all ages by demonstrating corrective, old age and fantasy make-up. Grades: 1 -12
