Presented by Carousel Theatre, Missoula Children’s Theatre and the Indianola High School Theatre Department
Carousel Theatre of Indianola is partnering with Missoula Children’s Theatre and the Indianola High School Drama Department to present Johnny Appleseed, a summer Theatre Camp for children enter grades 1st through 8th!
This week-long Theatre Camp goes beyond the traditional run-of-the-mill summer day camp. Throughout the week our guests from Missoula Children’s Theatre will direct participants through the ins and outs of this fantastic children’s musical.
After an all-inclusive audition process on the first day, participants will spend most of their time refining their skills in two, two-hour rehearsal sessions per day. Every participant is guaranteed a role in the play. Based on the role in which the participant is cast, they will not likely need to be at every rehearsal session during the week. But because auditions are held on the first day, to participate, everyone must commit to being available for every session of every day of the week-long program.

Performance: July 2, 2022

The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre, mission is the development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts.
MCT is based in Missoula, Montana, and runs many local and touring programs. These include musical theatre day camps and performing arts classes for children, a summer residency Performing Arts Camp for students from around the world, and the Missoula Community Theatre, which creates an arena for local talent of all ages to participate in large-scale productions and attracts audiences from western Montana.
MCT has been touring extensively for more than 40 years from Montana to Japan, and will visit nearly 1,200 communities this year with up to 44 teams of Tour Actor/Directors. A tour team arrives in a given town with a set, lights, costumes, props, and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play . . . except the cast. The team holds an open audition and casts 50-60 local students to perform in the production. The show is rehearsed throughout the week and two public performances are presented on Saturday. All MCT shows are original adaptations of classic children’s stories and fairytales . . . a twist on the classic stories that you know and love.
Also included in the week-long program are three enrichment workshops presented by the Tour Actor/Directors. Creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills, and self-esteem are all characteristics that are attained through participation in this unique, educational project.
