This summer at The Paramount for TWO weeklong residencies!

Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) is a world renowned children’s theatre company based in Missoula, Montana, and has been touring for more than 30 years.  A team of two professional tour actor/directors will arrive in Charlottesville with scenery, costumes, props, make-up and basic lighting – everything it takes to put on a play…except the cast.  The residency begins with an audition.  50-60 students, grades 1-12 are cast and well-rehearsed throughout the week, learning lines, songs and choreography that will culminate into an original, musical production.  For more information about MCT, go to: www.mctinc.org

Residency Week 6/15-6/20, 2015
Public Performances: Friday 6/19, 6PM & Saturday 6/20, 11AM

The Missoula Children’s Theatre presents Sleeping Beauty, an original adaptation of the classic fairy tale.  Five hundred years pass, and Sleeping Beauty wakes to find herself in a Rock “n Roll Fable for the ages.  This is definitely no sleeper!


Residency Week 6/22-6/27, 2015
Public Performances: Saturday 6/27/15, 1PM & 3:30PM

It’s a swirling sandstorm of famous Arabian Tales from Ali Baba to Scheherazade, and even Sinbad the Sailor, as Aladdin journeys to find a magic lamp in a Cave of (not-so-great) Wonders.  Along his way Aladdin seeks answers and advice from wise Genies, a powerful Sultan, and his own mother to find a way to meet the princess.



Pre-registration will be required and will begin April 1, 2015. Registration forms will be available mid-March.

Open to youth (rising 1st grade – 12th grade).

Here’s what some of the parents of past Missoula participants at The Paramount have to say…..

mct playbill 2“….The performances were amazing. It is incredible how much was accomplished in a week!…”

“….there was such a sense of community and teamwork – the children were all part of something bigger than just themselves – and I think they felt very proud of their accomplishments when the day was over….”


missoula playbill kids“…..My daughters couldn’t wait to go to rehearsal every day. They knew the whole play by the end of the week and were so excited to perform for whoever would listen. I watched many of the -practices and was impressed by how age-appropriate the teaching was and by how there was not a second of time wasted. The children knew exactly what they were going to accomplish each day and really had fun learning all of what goes into putting on a musical….”

“…I really can’t say enough about our family’s experience at the Paramount this summer. My children thoroughly enjoyed it and the Paramount will always be a special place to them as well. This was the highlight of their summer. They gained confidence to try new things and the opportunity to enjoy performing in front of a crowd- invaluable life lessons that I, as a parent, am so glad they learned….”




The Paramount Theater is proud to join forces with community leaders to bring high quality performing arts to our community.
