Missoula is coming......
Missoula Children's Theatre is coming to District 49!
Would you like to host Missoula Children's Theatre at your school? You have the opportunity to do just that, through the IGNITE grant. IGNITE will pay for all costs involved. The school will be asked to provide the following:
- a piano and accompanist
- two rehearsal spaces
- “playing area” (the area in front of the set)
Wondering, "What exactly is Missoula Children's Theater?" Check out their Electronic Brochure and Promotional Tour Video, to get an overview of the program, and details about what hosting a ‘residency week’ entails. There are several options for performances and performance dates. This is being offered on a first come, first served basis, so don't hesitate! If you are interested in offering this opportunity to your students, but do not wish to host, please let me know and I can pair you up with other schools in your zone, so that all students have the opportunity to attend.
