(Courtesy photo) The Missoula Children’s Theatre has announced auditions for an upcoming production of “Blackbeard the Pirate”. Auditiions are set for Monday, April 15.

Auditions for Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “Blackbeard the Pirate” will be held on Monday, April 15, 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., at Farmin-Stidwell Elementary, 1626 Spruce St., in the gymnasium. The auditions will be followed by the first rehearsal from 6 to 8 p.m.

The production is part of Missoula Children’s Theatre’s unique international touring project and is presented by Pend Oreille Arts Council. This touring production is complete with costumes, scenery, props and makeup.

Among the 50 to 60 roles to be cast are Blackbeard and his crew of bearded pirates, sailors of the high seas, cranky crabs and crocodiles, magical mermaids and seaweed creatures, parrots and even a group of beach bums! Students in grades K-12 are encouraged to audition. Students must be at least 5 years old to participate.

It is a group audition — no advance preparation is necessary, but a smile never hurts. The children should just be ready to come and have a good time! During the audition, two to four assistant directors, ages 10 and older, are selected to help teach and direct the show early in the week and take on technical responsibilities at performance time.

Rehearsal times will be announced at the auditions. Although not all cast members will be needed at every session, those auditioning must have a clear schedule for that entire week and if selected, be able to attend all rehearsals required for their role.

The public performances of MCT’s “Blackbeard the Pirate” will be held at the Panida Theater, 300 North First Ave., Sandpoint, on Saturday, April 20 at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Ticket prices are kept low to ensure the best possible attendance by parents, family, friends and the community-at-large. Adult tickets are $15 (two for $20), youth under 18 are $5 per performance.

Tickets are available now at artinsandpoint.org. For additional information, contact POAC at 208-263-6139 or poactivites@gmail.com.
