Special Information about the 2021 Missoula Children’s Theatre –

Pre-Registration Form

After missing 2020 due to the Covid pandemic, two actor/directors from The Missoula Children’s Theatre will return to Albion June 21 through 26.  This year’s play is Red Riding Hood, and all young people who have completed Kindergarten through 12th grade are invited to pre-register for this event. 

Though Missoula has resumed touring, they are being extra cautious since their actor/director teams travel all over the United States and Canada and are requiring all aspiring actors are asked to pre-register before Monday, June 21.  For the first time, there will be a limit on the number of children age 7 and under (only 16 children age 7 and under may participate), so if your child is this age, please pre-register soon!

Pre-Registration Form

To pre-register simply click this link –  Pre-Registration Form  – for a downloadable .pdf file.  Once you’ve filled out the form, either scan and email it to us at arts2008@frontiernet.net or mail it to us at Albion Area Arts Council, PO Box 124, Albion, NE 68620.  But please make sure the form gets to us BEFORE Monday, June 21st.

We will contact you after we receive your registration form.

All young people selected to participate (and we are confident everyone will be selected) need to be at the Boone Central Performance Gym in Albion before 12 Noon, Monday, June 21st.  Younger students will be dismissed at 2:00 p.m., but some older students with more complicated roles will be asked to stay until 4:30 p.m.  If you think your child may need to stay, please send a snack for them to eat between the audition and rehearsal.  A schedule of rehearsals for the rest of the week will be sent home on the first day.

Pre-Registration Form

VERY IMPORTANT: In order to bring the Missoula Children’s Theatre to the Albion area young people pre-register and everyone involved in this week-long event MUST wear a mask, including during the 2 performances (we will provide masks, but feel free to bring your own).  We know that wearing masks – especially on stage – may not be the most fun, but these are the requirements to bring the MCT back to Albion.  Audience members will also be required to wear masks.

We apologize for any inconvenience, but we want to give this area’s children the opportunity to participate in Red Riding Hood, and to do so requires that young people pre-register and everyone wears a mask. 

Thank you for your understanding, and PLEASE contact us with any questions or concerns at arts2008@frontiernet.net or by calling Paul or Lori Hosford at 402-395-6727.

More Ways To Help

Nebraska’s local arts organizations — including the Albion Area Arts Council — couldn’t fulfill their mission of bringing the arts and humanities to all parts of our state without the assistance of the Nebraska Arts Council, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, Humanities Nebraska and Nebraskans For The Arts.  Please visit these websites to learn more about these organizations and what you can do to help them support the arts and humanities across our state.
