When I began working at the Hawkinsville Opera House I knew that Missoula Children’s Theatre had been an engaging part of our community for many years. I hate to admit that I had never participated in or attended one until this year. Missoula Children’s Theatre is a 501-C3 that sends traveling directors and actors to teach acting workshops and put on plays for communities across the globe. Each community hosts two staff. They instruct fifty to sixty children from first grade .
