Missoula Children's Theater

The park district will once again partner with the Rural Cass Community Theatre and sponsor youth theater in Casselton.  Rehearsals and production begins in April this year.

The Missoula Children's Theater troupe will rehearse with our kids the week of April 16-20 to prepare a presentation of Gulliver's Travels.

With his ship wrecked and his trusty computer JCN on the fritz, brave explorer Gulliver finds himself lost in space with nothing but an invisible force to guide him.

While transporting from world to world, Gulliver battles a mad scientist, fighting aliens, larger-than-life royalty (in more ways than one) and robots - all who need as much help from Gulliver as he does from them!

Tune in as this sci-fi spin on the timeless tale of Gulliver's Travels takes you out of this world!

MCT will also host a series of enrichment workshops during the week that will focus on our children's creativity, social and communication skills, as well self-esteem.  MCT's mission is to assist in the development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts.

Please Note:  MCT requires all those involved with their summer productions to follow the listed guidelines to insure a successful week and to avoid situations that could compromise the artistic integrity of the program and lessen the value and effectiveness of the residency week.
