Missoula Children's Theater at The Lofte
The time is long ago and the place is the magical, mythical Sherwood Forest. Our hero, Robin Hood, and his Merry Band of colorful characters seek the help of the Foresters, manage to waylay the Aristocrats and set out to rescue Maid Marion and Marion's Maid. Prince John tries to stay calm as his Sheriff, guards and horsemen botch Robin's arrest (thanks to the Skunks). Wacky humor and an original score make this legendary story even more fun for everyone!
For the third year running the Lofte is proud to host the touring directors from Missoula, Montana! This community outreach helps the youth experience the joy and excitement of live theater at no cost to them or their parents. The children make new friends, learn responsibility and gain a greater sense of self-confidence through this wonderful program. Auditions will be held from 10am-12pm on Monday, June 16th. If your child is cast, rehearsals will start at approximately 12:30pm on that same day. A detailed rehearsal schedule will be available after auditions, but please make sure the student has a clear schedule for the entire week and can make every rehearsal and performance.
