The Pied Piper

April 1 to 6, 2019

Back by popular demand for the 15th time: the Missoula Children’s Theatre Experience!

Once again, TYKEs welcomes an incredible concept in children’s theatre—a full-scale musical with sets, costumes, make-up and props, starring 60 local kids—all created within a week.

Kids can enjoy the show in two ways: by watching it—or starring in it! Budding thespians, ages five and up, rehearse Monday through Friday and perform the show that Saturday. Missoula Children’s Theatre has been touring all over the world for more than 40 years and comes to town with everything needed to put on a play—except the cast. Children spend the week learning lines, songs and choreography for this full-length musical.
