COMING IN JULY
SYNOPSIS: Although set in a “land of colored ice,” this classic tale will warm your heart in its illustrative retelling by a group of fun-loving, imaginative hobgoblins. As they depict the journey of a young girl and her quest to find her best friend, you may just find yourself believing in malevolent mirrors, yetis, talking reindeer, and snow chickens! Blizzards can come at any moment, so strap on some snowshoes and get ready to discover what it takes to overcome chilling obstacles, keep resilience alive, and melt down the Snow Queen’s icy walls.
The musical adaption of this story will be presented by Northern Nevada Arts Council and Missoula Children's Theater from JULY 6 THROUGH JULY 11, at LOWRY HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM.
Children ages from entering first grade this year and graduating from high school last month are eligible to perform.
Cost: $30 for the first child in a family; $20 for each additional child in the same family.
Auditions are at the auditorium on MONDAY, JULY 6, AT 10 a.m.
Rehearsals are throughout the week and the performances are SATURDAY, JULY 11.
For more information, please call Jean at 304-5955.
COMING IN AUGUST
TO FRENCH FORD MIDDLE SCHOOL
SYNOPSIS: Deep in the royal swamp, a lonely Frog retrieves a golden ball for Princess Prim in exchange for friendship and comfort. The spoiled princess doesn't want to live up to her part of the bargain and puts her royal Knights on alert. And so the trouble begins. Luckily, Frog gets some good advice from Ollie, the wise old Aspen tree, the well-read Alligator, and the kindly Swamp Things. The Ducks, a busy Fly, and dancing Flamingos also come to Frog's assistance as the Frog's kindly servant tirelessly tries to set things right. Even the kindly Princess Proper and spunky Princess Peppy get involved and, despite the trouble caused by the mischievous Venus Fly Traps, all ends happily. Our hero becomes a Prince (formerly known as Frog) and realizes that friendships are made, not bought--and he discovers that it is not what you are but who you are that counts.
If you can't make the July production, all is not lost! We will be presenting The Frog Prince from August 3 through 8, at FRENCH FORD MIDDLE SCHOOL CAFETERIA, with the same scheduling: auditions on Monday, August 3, rehearsals and workshops throughout the week and performances on Saturday, August 8; and same ages.
Call Jean at 304-5955 if you need more information, or to volunteer for either of these productions.
