Missoula Children’s Theatre – Blackbeard the Pirate

July 3, 2023 @ 12:00 am - July 8, 2023 @ 12:00 am


Calling all theatre kids: join us for a daring adventure on the high seas! The Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre is proud to host Missoula Children’s Theatre for their annual musical theatre summer camp and this year’s production of Blackbeard the Pirate.

What starts as a lazy day at the beach quickly turns into mystery and adventure when the search for Blackbeard’s treasure begins! Tales both past and present lead us on a search for untold riches. Just where has Blackbeard and his crew hidden their legendary treasure?

For more than 40 years, the Missoula Children’s Theatre has visited communities from Montana to Japan. Their summer camps have been an annual traditional at the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre for over a decade. The tour team arrives in town with all the sets, lights, costumes, props and make-up to bring classic children’s stories to life. Over five days, students participate in a fun audition, receive their roles and rehearse the production before performing in front of friends and family.

Everyone gets a role and there are parts suitable for students from grades 1 to 12 with all levels of experience. Among the roles to be cast are the infamous Blackbeard and his crew of pirates, sailors of the high seas, cranky crabs and crocodiles, magical mermaids and seaweed creatures, parrots and even a group of beach bums!

“There are only a few spaces left, so act fast!” said Kennedy.

This year’s Missoula Children’s Theatre summer camp takes place from July 3 to July 8 at the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre. Performances take place on July 8 at 3:30PM and 5:30PM.

Registration for Missoula Children’s Theatre’s summer camp costs $130 per student and includes two performance tickets. Additional performance tickets are $12. To learn more & register call 250-549-SHOW (7469) or visit www.vdpac.ca.
