The West Fargo Park District is excited to be working with the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT). MCT is the nation’s largest touring children’s theatre and has been touring extensively for 40 years now from Montana to Japan, and will visit nearly 1,200 communities this year. A tour team will arrive in West Fargo with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play except the cast. The show is rehearsed throughout the week and two public performances will be presented at the end of the week. All MCT shows are original adaptations of classic children’s stories and fairy tales with a twist on the classic stories that you know and love. Also included are three enrichment workshops presented by the Tour Actor/Directors. Creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills and self-esteem are all characteristics that are attained through the participation in this unique, educational project. MCT’s mission is the development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts.

This program is offered in the summer months.
