The Missoula Children’s Theatre camps in August at Flathead and Seeley Lakes were cancelled due to COVID-19. While this decision was extremely difficult, the cancellation also freed up time, staff resources and space for a new and exciting option for school-age children: Bonus Camps at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts in Missoula!
These innovative Monday-Friday camps will take place Aug. 3-7 and Aug. 10-14. Space is limited to 20 participants per camp, and registration is open at www.MCTinc.org. -All current safety protocols of social distancing, wearing masks, frequent handwashing, and sanitizing of the facility are in place, for the safety of the day camp participants.
Drama Quest (entering grades 1-3) meets from 9 a.m.-noon. Students will fire up their imaginations to transform a written story into a lively play by engaging their focus, voices and physical expression to creatively develop big, bold characters and staging. Registration fee is $125 and includes an MCT neck/face buff.
MCT Explorers and Inventors (entering grades 4-8) meets from 1-5 p.m. Using ensemble acting activities, students will activate their creativity and expression to stretch and improve their own theatre and improvisational skills, while playing starring roles in developing MCT’s next generation of theatre outreach. Registration is $150 and includes an MCT t-shirt.
Musical Theatre Express (entering grades 9-12) convenes 1-5 p.m. This offers a focused, inspiring environment for motivated high school students serious about developing and refining their acting, singing and dancing skills.
