Help Wanted: Missoula Children's Theater

We are looking for someone to chair the event. This would include organizing sign-ups, auditions, rehearsals, and performances. General volunteers will be needed as well. We will also be looking for families to host our two guest artists. Hosting would include providing lodging in a single bedroom (private-space) and may include meals – the guests love to immerse themselves with the hosting families. For more information about leading the committee, being on the committee or hosting a guest artist, email us at We are working on helpful information with specifics about each of these positions which will be shared out soon.
