Summer fun and inspiration for kids who love the stage! Residents of the famed Missoula Children’s Theatre partner with some of the best area instructors to offer a full week of camp at HCA. Budding performers work side-by-side with experts to present an original production, this year learning by having fun with MCT’s Sleeping Beauty, an adaptation of the classic fairy tale.
In this rock-n-roll fable for the ages, a new princess is born, and from far and wide the people of the kingdom gather to celebrate. One simple mistake is made – an invitation is misplaced – and the wrath of the vicious Scarella falls upon the poor infant in the form of a spell. Sleeping Beauty is now destined to sleep for eternity if she should prick her finger on a spindle before she reaches her sixteenth birthday. Sleeping Beauty’s Fairy Godmothers do their best to amend the spell, but Scarella, with the help of some nasty Trolls, tricks Sleeping Beauty into pricking her finger and the spell takes effect. Five hundred years pass and Sleeping Beauty wakes to find herself in a Rock ‘n Roll dream! Also featured in this production are the King and the Queen, Spot, the Fairies, the Palace Attendants and the Caterpillars. This is no sleeper!
Divided into two groups spanning ages 6 – 16, kids will come to camp every day to sing, dance, act and learn new skills in workshops led by Missoula residents and local experts. The camp culminates in two main stage weekend performances open to the public. Activities are planned and facilitated by camp staff; registration includes a T-shirt. Scholarships are available.
