CAMP June 23-27

PERFORMANCES June 28-29 at 3:00 & 5:00 p.m.

Deep in the salty waters of the Sassafras Sea, there lived a Little Mermaid.  Her name was Celia.  She lived for music.  In fact, it was said that she had the loveliest scales in all of the Deep.  Celia and her three sisters were allowed one visit to the World Above, each on their sixteenth birthday, to learn the secrets of life on dry land.  Their discoveries included ferocious dragons, advancing armies and, of course, a handsome and resourceful Prince Charming.  In a new version of the age-old tale, lots of music, plot surprises and humor await the audience.

Summer 2014 Day Camp 2

CAMP July 7-11

PERFORMANCES July 12-13 at 3:00 & 5:00 p.m.

Geppetto fashioned the puppet in the image of a small boy.  Even as the lonely and kind woodcarver worked far into the night, old Geppetto was not aware that the wood under the chisel had come from the trunk of an enchanted tree.  But the Blue Fairy was aware, as she watched from afar and gave to that puppet the gift of life.  Thus begins the Missoula Children's Theatre adaptation of one of the most beloved of all children’s stories – PINOCCHIO.  Join our wooden-head as he dances with Geppetto’s charming toys, travels the road to Pleasure Isle with Candlewick and his Crew, and is swindled by the unsavory Fox and Cat.  After escaping the clutches of the evil puppetmaster, Stromboli, Pinocchio finds himself in trouble once more – this time swallowed by a monstrous whale. Very scary stuff! As Geppetto and the friendly Urchins spin their magical tale, we learn with Pinocchio that there are no shortcuts on the road to becoming a real, live boy.
