Robinson Crusoe at Harmony Hall, Dec 14

The Missoula Children’s Theatre presents
Robinson Crusoe
A musical play

Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 11am and 1pm

Location: Harmony Hall Regional Center in Fort Washington

Purposely varying from the plot of Daniel Defoe’s novel, Missoula Children’s Theatre’s “Robinson Crusoe” teaches the lesson that reading invites more than observation.

We arrive on Robinson’s island years after he and his sole companion, a goat named Wilson, are shipwrecked. We find that the island has turned into a tourist destination centered around a lovable singing leopard, a tribe of natives known for their colorful coifs, Friday’s Seaside Resort and, of course, the legend of Robinson Crusoe. In a flashback, his story comes to life beginning with the shipwreck, which marooned him and Wilson on the island.

The entire population of the island, including a herd of goats, an all-animal band, Friday and his family, and the inevitable hula-dancing chameleons, discover that our differences need not stand in the way of our friendships. All of the characters live happily and harmoniously ever after.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre provides two professional tour actor/directors, who will audition and cast 50 to 60 local elementary school children in this production on Monday. To participate, see the audition notice.

Tickets to the performance: $5.

The Music Theater Intensive at Laurel Mill Playhouse presents Fame! Jr. and a Kids’ Cabaret

Following the international acclaim of the hit motion picture, television series and stage show, Fame The Musical JR. is nothing short of a global phenomenon. Fame JR. features a high-energy, contemporary pop score (which includes the hit title song) and a touching coming-of-age story.

Set during the last years of New York City’s celebrated High School for the Performing Arts in the early 1980s, Fame JR. is the bittersweet, but ultimately inspiring, story of a diverse group of students who commit to four years of grueling artistic and academic work. With candor, humor and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today.

Produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre, International. Performances run weekends from Friday August 2, 2019 through Sunday August 18, 2019 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 p.m. Tickets are $22 for general admission. Admission for students (12 and under), active duty military and seniors (65 and over) is $17. Tickets can be purchased by clicking the link below.
