Missoula Children’s Theatre will be making its annual pilgrimage to the North Island this spring. And this time members will be seeking hidden treasure.

The touring company, which presents adapted classic children’s stories featuring a cast of local children, will host auditions for Treasure Island Monday, May 2, beginning at 3:30 p.m. in the Sunset Elementary School gym.

Auditions will run until 5:30 p.m., and some of those who have been selected will be asked to remain for a rehearsal immediately following the auditions.

Students from kindergarten through Grade 7 are invited to audition, and no advance preparation is necessary. Parts are available for actors and for backstage assistant directors.

Students earning parts will need to be available for additional afternoon and evening rehearsals throughout the week. The play will be presented to the public Saturday, May 7 at Pioneer Theatre.

Missoula Children’s Theatre touring productions feature teams of two actors/directors, traveling in a truck with complete sets, props, makeup and costumes for its productions.

The members put young students through a crash course in acting and theatre production and put on public performances in less than a week. In recent years the troupe has put on shows of Snow White, Robinson Crusoe, Pinocchio and Robin Hood in Port McNeill.

Writers take the familiar, beloved stories and add characters and improbable side plots, often creating interaction with the audience.

The theatre’s residence in Port McNeill is sponsored by support from the Andrew Mahon Foundation and local businesses and organizations.

Anyone interested in donating to the production or seeking more information may contact Charlotte Johnson at the Family Centre in the Old School building or call Kathy Martin at 250-956-3456.
