Children in grades K-12 are welcome to audition for this musical production co-presented by the Lakewood Cultural Center and Missoula Children's Theatre.

 

An audition will be held for the Missoula Children's Theatre (MCT) original musical adaptation of “Robinson Crusoe” on Monday, Jan. 27, 2020, at the Lakewood Cultural Center, 470 S. Allison Parkway. Children in kindergarten through 12th grade are encouraged to audition. No advance preparation is necessary. Registration is open from 3:30 to 4 p.m., and those auditioning should plan to stay until 6:15 p.m. or longer. Some of the cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the audition. Rehearsals will continue Tuesday through Friday evenings and Saturday morning.

Among the roles to be cast:

  • Robinson Crusoe.
  • Crusoe’s sole companion, a goat named Wilson.
  • Leonard the Leopard, Friday’s Family, the Oscar Octopus Octet and a family of goats.
  • The very hairy Frowny-Face Tribe and the colorful chameleons.

Assistant directors ages 10 and older will also be selected from the audition to aid in rehearsals throughout the week and to take on essential backstage responsibilities. The MCT touring productions are complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup. The $70 registration fee for participation will be assessed only to those children accepted into the program and includes two $10 tickets to the performance. Limited scholarships are available.
