Envision a kingdom of snow where the residents are Winter Wind Workers, Blizzard Bringers, Icicle Sharpeners and Snow Smoothers, ruled by the Storm King and the Snow Queen. Add to that a Prince looking for a proper Princess to share the throne. Now imagine the Princess and her friend the Pea living in a kingdom of green rolling hills and running rivers with her subjects, The Flower Gardeners, River Runners, Green Shoot Growers and Tree Barkers. Her parents, King Size and Queen Size, do all they can to keep things running smoothly. Who knows, maybe the dancing Dust Bunnies can help? Although the two kingdoms think they have nothing in common (except maybe a pesky Jack Frost that freezes anything and everything), the peace-loving Leprechauns prove otherwise. Throw in some Phony Princesses and you have a real fiasco! This ain’t your grandma’s PRINCESS AND THE PEA. We think you will enjoy its twists and turns.
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.
