Twice a year (fall and summer) the little red truck from Missoula, Montana arrives at the Kate, and kids line up to get into the show! Kids audition on Monday and after casting is complete, the team has just 5 days to learn their lines, the choreography, and get into their costumes for two performances on Saturday. The program brings along two teaching artists who spend all week working with children to get them ready for the big show and teaching a little confidence, respect, and creativity along the way.
‘On Monday, they’re cast as characters. By Saturday, they’ve GAINED CHARACTER. The kind that really counts.’

Auditions: June 26, 2017 @ 10:00am
Performances: July 1, 2017 @ 12:00pm and 2:30pm
