The 2020 – 2021 tour marks MCT’s 50th season of providing professionally guided theatrical experiences for children. These experiences are both artistically satisfying and educationally fulfilling. The mission of the Missoula Children’s Theatre is the development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts. Our International Tour Project sends teams of two directors to a community or school setting for a one-week residency during which the team directs up to 64 local K-12 children in a one-hour musical. The shows are all original and mostly based on fairy tales. The demands on team members include directing/teaching skills, strong performance skills (team members appear in the show), organizational skills and critical communication skills with children, educators and parents alike.
