Missoula Theatre brings ‘Wizard’ to Port Alice

Port Alice - Local youth to present two show Saturday with touring theatre troupe

PORT ALICE — Local youth will put a new spin on a beloved old tale Saturday when Missoula Children’s Theatre presents Wiz of the West in two shows at the Port Alice Community Centre.

Showtimes are 3:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The play, filled with comedy and music, imagines Dorothy and her Wizard of Oz companions seeking the elusive wizard in the Old West.

The production is facilitated by Missoula Children’s Theatre of Missoula, Montana. Teams of two touring actor/directors travel with a full set of costumes, props and sets.

In the span of one week, the touring teams audition local youth, hold rehearsals and put on a pair of productions.

Saturday’s shows mark the theatre troupe’s first appearance in Port Alice. It is sponsored with help from the Village of Port Alice and Neucel Specialty Cellulose.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children, and will be available at the door.
