    Auditions were held today for the Missoula Childrens' Theater production in our town. They are doing Jack and the Beanstalk. They take the story and make it hilarious!

    for any who haven't heard of MCT, they travel all over the country (and other countries) and put on plays using children from the various communities. You can check it out at:

    This is an amazing experience for kids entering 1st grade in the fall to age 18. We have done this for 4 years now. Last year jess was the lead in their version of the Little Mermaid!

    We had 112 kids audition. Only 50 were cast, but that is a LOT!! Jess is a farmer! thank you and Wizard didn't want to do it this year.

    The kids will work on the play this afternoon, and the rest of the week and then perform for the community on Saturday!! ONE WEEK of rehearsal and then the performance. It is intense, but kids are cast by age group and the little ones are surprisingly able to cope (they only practice 2 hours in the morning, not the afternoon practices adn not every day).

    I am jsut so proud!!! And I can hardly wait for the performance!!!

    Yeah for Jess! Activities are such a necessity to help young girls develop a sense of self and value. I truly believe that pcdaugther is who she is today because of the opportunities that her years in dance afforded her. Break a leg, Jess!!!
