"Hansel & Gretel" Auditions at Lofte Theatre
Members of the 2011 cast of 'Pinocchio' give the Missoula Children's Theater experience a thumbs up!
For the sixth straight year, the Lofte Community Theatre will be partnering with Missoula Children's Theater for a children's production. This year's musical is, "Hansel & Gretel."
Auditions will be held at the theater on Monday, June 11 at 10am. Auditions are open to students entering first through seventh grade. Approximately sixty children will be cast. There is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play. The audition process will last approximately two hours. Some children will be asked to stay for the first rehearsal immediately after auditions.
Rehearsals will take place at the Lofte June 11 through June 16, 10am to 2:30pm. While not all actors will be needed for all sessions, they should have a clear schedule for the week. Actors should bring a sack lunch each day.
The Lofte will hold two public performances of "Hansel & Gretel," on Saturday, June 16th. The first is at 3pm, the second is at 6pm. The cast will be called for a dress rehearsal 2-4 hours before the first performance. Adult admission is $8; children are $5.
Missoula Children's Theater is a non-profit organization based in Missoula, Montana. Their residency at the Lofte is generously sponsored in part by Plattsmouth State Bank and Home State Bank. Those with questions about auditions or tickets may call the Lofte box office at (402) 234-2553.
