Show Synopsis: Ever been abandoned in the jungle, adopted by wolves, taught by a bear, befriended by a panther and chased by a tiger? In the Missoula Children’s Theatre musical adaptation of THE JUNGLE BOOK, Mowgli the man-cub has all these adventures and more. Join him as he escapes from the Monkey-People, outwits a tiger, enlists the help of a rock-python, explores what it means to be human and learns a lesson from the brave mongoose Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. Original music and rollicking humor give new life to the classic tale by Rudyard Kipling.

Missoula Children's Theater 2019
Students performed Aladdin after a week long workshop with MCT.
Missoula Children's Theater
The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT), the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre, has been touring extensively for more than 40 years now. A tour team arrives in a given town with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play…except the cast. The team casts 50-60 local students to perform in the production. The show is rehearsed throughout the week and a public performance on Saturday. All MCT shows are original adaptations of classic children’s stories and fairytales….a twist on the classic stories that you know and love.
Also included in the residency are three enrichment workshops presented by the Tour Actor/Directors. Creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills and self-esteem are all characteristics that are attained through the participation in this unique, educational project project. MCT’s mission is the development of lifeskills in children through participation in the performing arts.
If your child is between the ages of 6 and 14 and has a an interest in the arts, this is a great opportunity to experience all aspects of the performance.
Two scholarships are available to students that cover the full cost of tuition for the Missoula Children’s Theatre workshop. They are made possible through BCPAC’s Howard W. Nickel Endowment Fund.
