The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre, has been touring extensively for 38 years now from Montana to Japan. This will be their 15th visit to MBT.

Each summer the MCT tour team arrives at the Theatre with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a musical…except the cast. Each camp consists of 50-60 local students who rehearse throughout the week and present two public Saturday performances on MBT’s Main Stage.

Creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills and self-esteem are all characteristics that are attained through the participation in this unique, educational project.

MCT’s mission is the development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts.


Missoula Children’s Theatre presents BEAUTY LOU AND THE COUNTRY BEAST, an original country western adaptation of the classic fairy tale BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Beauty Lou is the oldest daughter of the bronc-bustin’ balladeer Buck. At the local county fair, young Beauty Lou is upset by the ungrateful behavior of a miner who has won the blue ribbon for his beautiful roses. She calls him a beast and wishes that he would look like one too. Years later, when in danger of losing the family farm, Buck meets the miner-turned-beast. Beauty Lou agrees to befriend the Beast to save her family. Beauty Lou and the Beast both learn to look beyond appearances and first impressions and to see the beauty that dwells inside. The story, set in the American West, also features Beauty Lou’s six sisters, her Imaginary Friend, her dog Fleabite Clyde, farmhands Slim and Dusty, the neighborly Country Folk and the Barnyard Critters.


Additional Camps:

July 10-15 Treasure Island
