The Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) Tour makes its nationwide stop in Sequim on Monday, Jan. 9, to audition and cast local children in the musical “Alice in Wonderland” at the Sequim High School cafeteria.

The tour and its directors make their way all around the country to cast local children in theater performances.

Since 2004, Sequim residents have been participating in these performances and productions sponsored by Olympic Theatre Arts and MCT.

This year, the performance will be “Alice in Wonderland,” in the form of a musical.

Carol Willis, executive director of Olympic Theatre Arts, said last year more than 80 local children auditioned for “Rupunzel.” Of the 80 that auditioned, 60 were cast in the show and four were chosen as backstage directors.

Willis said this opportunity allows children in the community to be “exposed to the magic of theater,” and have the chance to perform in a theater production.

Erin Dwyer, a Port Angeles Middle School student, is the featured pianist for the musical this year.

Auditions start at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 9, at the Sequim High cafeteria and are open to children kindergarten through grade 12.

Missoula Children’s Theatre directors work with the children there for a couple of hours and start rehearsals for some, depending on the role they are playing.

The rest of the rehearsals will be held as two, two-hour segments from Tuesday through Friday over the next week in the SHS auditorium.

The final production will start at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14, at the SHS auditorium.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.
