Missoula Children's Theatre Updates

We look forward to our week-long Missoula Children's Theatre Camps all year, and we know that's true for many of you, as well.

As you all know, we had to cancel our 2020 and 2021 camps because of COVID restrictions and the unpredictability of the situation.

The Missoula Camps are very dependent on being able to meet in our local schools and to gather in large groups. We also need to make commitments in January in order to hold the camps in the summer, and we need to have some certainty that we'll be able to have the camps in order to do that.

We are very hopeful that we'll be able to bring MCT back in the summer of 2022, so please stay tuned for the official update, coming in early February.

We truly cannot wait to get back to what we love---bringing children's theater opportunities to our community, and we'll keep looking ahead to when we can do that again.
