June 12 – 17
The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre, is coming to Avon to stage an original, full-scale musical production with local cast members in grades K – 12. A tour team will arrive in Avon with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play…except the cast. Auditions will begin on June 12th to cast 50-60 local students to perform The Tortoise Versus the Hare. Rehearsals are scheduled throughout the week, with one performance scheduled for Friday, June 16th and two performances scheduled for Saturday, June 17th. All students must be registered to audition, and registration for this free program is available on a first-come, first-serve basis through the Avon Recreation Center.
