Missoula Children’s Theatre Summer Workshop: Aladdin
June 8-13 at the Mesquite Arts Center
Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) offers a selection of educational workshops to complement the week long residency of Aladdin. The camp allows for 50-60 students, kindergarten through tenth grade, and they will have to audition for the various roles. The camp runs 1-5 pm daily. No previous theater experience is necessary. Performances are Saturday June 13th at 3 and 5:30 pm. Cost for the camp is $75.
For Aladdin it’s not easy to find a magic lamp but it’s even harder to get a date! It’s a swirling sandstorm of famous Arabian Tales from Ali Baba to Scheherazade, and even Sinbad the Sailor, as Aladdin journeys to find a magic lamp in a Cave of (not-so-great) Wonders. Along his way Aladdin seeks answers and advice from wise Genies, a powerful Sultan, and his own Mother to find a way to meet the Princess. However, even with the lamp in hand, Aladdin will have to learn that it takes more than a wish to make a good impression. Full of memorable characters, from lost Penguins to talking Palm Trees, this is an adventure worthy of 1001 laughs.
