Each June the Missoula Children's Theatre visits Crockett to produce one of their original productions. A MCT tour team arrives Crockett in their “little red truck” loaded with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play…except the cast. The team holds an open audition on Monday, and casts 50-60 local students (students entering 1st grade through 12th grade) to perform in the production. The show is rehearsed throughout the week and two public performances are presented at the end of the week on Saturday.
Piney Woods is very fortunate to receive assistance from local donors that enables the children of our community participate at no charge.
The Missoula Children’s Theatre residency in Crockett is presented in association with KIVY/KMVL, Houston County Courier, TLC Media, Texas Farm & Home and The Messenger, and funded in part by the Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation.
