When Captain Hook sends his right-hand man Smee on a quest to capture Peter Pan, it’s seemingly business as usual…at first. Little does Hook realize what fantastic adventures await him and his pirate posse in their search for the elusive Peter Pan. Mistaken identities, ever-morphing clouds, a classy crocodile, some very lost boys, and a fickle shadow all add to the mayhem. Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Darling embark on a quest of their own and find themselves trekking everywhere from Hawaii to the North Pole in search of their three missing children. With help from the earth-friendly Neverlanders, exotic Neverland creatures, and faithful Tinker Bell, the Darling children are found, disputes are ultimately resolved, and everyone – including Captain Hook – finds a place where they truly belong.
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 14th 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.
