About Missoula Children's Theatre

After a two-year hiatus when we had to cancel our 2020 and 2021 camps because of the pandemic, we're gearing back up for this year's Missoula Children's Theatre camps!

These camps fill very quickly (often within an hour or two of opening registration) and slots are available on a first-come/first-served basis.  So please do not wait to sign up!

The Missoula Children’s Theatre camps provide a week-long summer day camp experience run by professional actors for up to 60 children. Children audition on Monday morning, are assigned parts before lunch, and begin rehearsals by that same afternoon. On Friday night and Saturday morning, after only a week of rehearsals, they present two performances (usually a fairy tale with a twist!), complete with costumes, props, and sets.

We have two summer day camps each year, one in Mathews and one in Middlesex. They are open to children who have completed grades K-12 and who are committed to attending all week.

Workshops begin Monday through Thursday at 9:30 a.m. Children ages 5 to 7 stay until noon, while children who are at least 8 years old by the Monday that camp begins stay until 2 p.m. All students bring a packed lunch.

On Friday, students come after lunch (at 1:30 p.m.), participate in one final rehearsal, eat a heavy snack in costume at 5 p.m. and then perform for an audience at 6 p.m.

On Saturday morning,  students will arrive at 9:30 a.m.,  get into costume and makeup, and prepare for their performance that day.

Additional mini workshops are available on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, lasting until 3:00 p.m. for those who participate

Payment for the camp is due at the time of registration in the form of cash or check made out to Court House Players: $85 for one student, $75 for any additional siblings.  Partial scholarships are available to help offset the cost of the camp for those with financial need.

Performances are always open to the public.  Tickets will be available in advance and at the door.

We truly cannot wait to get back to what we love---bringing children's theater opportunities to our community!
