What starts as a lazy day at the beach, quickly turns into mystery and adventure when the search for Blackbeard's treasure begins! Tales both past and present launch a group of beach bums to action in search of untold riches. Before our tale is told, a cast of colorful characters begin to reveal the secrets of Blackbeard's amazing treasure. Can we trust a group of crabby crabs or melodious mermaids? Do the scary seaweed creatures or savvy sailors know where "X" marks the spot? Will
the precocious parrots or cantankerous crocodiles lead the way? And just who is Jolly Roger and how does he know Sam the Clam!? Most of all, where has Blackbeard and his crew hidden their legendary treasure? Grab some sun screen, come on down to the beach and get ready to solve the mystery of BLACKBEARD THE PIRATE!
Commitment: Less than one week: Tue thru Fri 4pm to 8:30pm & Sat 9am to 3pm. See rehearsal schedule (distributed at conclusion of auditions) for required times for role and location each day. Although not all cast members will be needed at every session, those auditioning must have a clear schedule for the entire week and, if selected, be able to attend performances and ALL rehearsals required for their role. The first rehearsal for some (older) characters begins approximately 30 minutes after the auditions are concluded. PLEASE DO NOT AUDITION if you cannot accept a role AND be available for ALL scheduled rehearsals and performances. Parents, teachers & the public may watch the rehearsals although it may be fun for kids to surprise the audience at the performance! Missoula Children's Theatre is a non-profit organization based in Missoula, Montana. This coming year nearly 50,000 cast members across the globe will take to the stage to the delight and applause of families, friends, neighbors and teachers!
