Missoula’s Children’s Theatre’s Sleeping Beauty
A little red truck pulls into our town with everything it takes to mount a full-scale musical production . . . except the cast. That’s where the children of our community come in. The Missoula Children’s Theatre proudly presents an original musical version of Sleeping Beauty. A new princess is born, and from far and wide the people of the kingdom gather to celebrate. One simple mistake is made – an invitation is misplaced – and the wrath of the vicious Scarella falls upon the poor infant in the form of a spell. Sleeping Beauty is now destined to sleep for eternity if she should prick her finger on a spindle before she reaches her sixteenth birthday. Sleeping Beauty’s Fairy Godmothers do their best to amend the spell, but Scarella, with the help of some nasty Trolls, tricks Sleeping Beauty into pricking her finger and the spell takes effect. Five hundred years pass, and Sleeping Beauty wakes to find herself in a Rock ‘n Roll dream! Also featured in this production are the King and the Queen, Spot, the Fairies, the Palace Attendants, and the Caterpillars. SLEEPING BEAUTY–a Rock ‘n Roll Fable for the ages. This is definitely no sleeper!

Neil Simon's Jake's Women
America's premier comic playwright makes another hilarious foray into the world of modern relationships. Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than with life, faces a marital crisis by daydreaming about the women in his life. The wildly comic and sometimes moving flashbacks played in his mind are interrupted by visitations from actual females. Jake's women include a revered first wife, his daughter, his boisterous and bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is leaving Jake for another man, and a prospective third wife.
"Fantastically funny...Jake's Women are a wonderful crowd." - The New York Post

West Side story
Music by Leonard Bernstein
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by Arthur Laurents
From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents' book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments.
Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
West Side Story is recommended for ages 13+.
Please be advised that there is violence and
some sensitive subject matter that is true to
the story and plot. Parental guidance is suggested.
Tuesday November17th, 2015 Please come prepared with a 16-32 bars of a musical number
from a classic Broadway show. A piano accompanist will be provided. Clear sheet music with marked cuts is required.
No Acapella or karaoke track auditions. There will be cold readings from the script.
Please come dressed appropriately and prepared to dance. 6-9pm in the
