Follow trail of crumbs to audition

PORT McNEILL-Missoula Children's Theatre returns to guide students through offbeat version of Hansel and Gretel

The Gatehouse Community Theatre in Port McNeill will host auditions this summer for the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of Hansel and Gretel.

Auditions will be held on July 30 from 1-3 p.m. Those auditioning should arrive at 1 p.m. and plan to stay for the full two hours. Some of the cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal immediately following the auditions.

Among the roles to be cast are those intrepid adventurers Hansel and Gretel, the Wildwood Witch and her loyal servants, the crafty cooks, modern day campers somehow lost in time in the wood, lots of nasty critters and creepy denizens of the deep, and a flock of cuddly Wallybirds. Students entering first grade through to those completing seventh grade are encouraged to audition. No advance preparation is necessary.

Assistant directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week and to take on essential backstage responsibilities.

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 1-4:30 p.m. each day.

Hansel and Gretel will be presented on Saturday, Aug. 4 at The Gatehouse Community Theatre. The Missoula Children’s Theatre residency in Port McNeill is presented locally with support from local donations and the Andrew Mahon Foundation.

For more information, call Kathy Martin at 250-956-3456.
