Missoula Children’s Theatre holding ‘Snow White’ auditions

MARIETTA — Peoples Bank Theatre will be welcoming back Missoula Children’s Theatre for a production of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” featuring local school-age children.

The production begins with auditions on Monday, and culminates with a pair of performances on July 28 at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Auditions will be 10 a.m. to noon on Monday for students entering first grade through 12th grade, with plans to cast approximately 50-60 local students. There is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the play. Students wishing to audition must arrive by the scheduled starting time and stay for the entire two-hour session; due to time constraints, late comers and anyone missing the initial audition may not be considered in the audition of the show.

Participation in the production is free. No preparation or prior experience is necessary for the audition.

The first rehearsal will begin 15-30 minutes after the audition. Most students in the production will rehearse daily from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. Although not all cast members will be needed at every session, those auditioning must have a clear schedule for the entire week and if selected, be able to attend all rehearsals required for their role. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be distributed at the conclusion of the audition. Cast members scheduled for the full 4 1/2 hours of rehearsal will be asked to bring a sack lunch or snack.

Performances will be July 28 at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on the stage of Peoples Bank Theatre. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for youth 17 and younger. Admission proceeds directly support this program.

Tickets are available online at peoplesbanktheatre.com or by calling the box office at 740-371-5152. Walk-up hours at the box office are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday and one to two hours prior to most events.
