The Sunrise Theatre will host four (4) separate, week-long children’s summer programs in conjunction with the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT). During the camps, partially underwritten by the Sunrise Theatre Foundation and the help of volunteers, local partners and sponsors, professional MCT Tour Actor/Directors will work with a cast of 60+ local children in 4 original musical productions. There will be focused rehearsals with the children, where lines, staging, songs and movement are learned in 4, ½ hour sessions each day.
The weeks culminate in public performances of each session, starring local children, complete with professionally designed scenery and costumes. These are sure-to-please, feel-good…fun for the entire family… performances you won’t want to miss!
“Through the Sunrise Theatre, MCT, and the help of the Sunrise Theatre Foundation, media partners, volunteers and sponsors, our young children and teens will develop a love and appreciation of the arts …for life! Now that is priceless!” said Renee Page, Marketing and Development Director for the Sunrise Theatre.
