The directors are headed this way. They’ve got the scripts, the costumes, the sets, the music — now all they need is you. All local students entering grades 1-12, are invited to join the cast of the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “Johnny Appleseed” July 26-31 at the Lincoln City Cultural Center.

Thanks to local sponsors, Meredith Hospitality and the Walter R. Behrens Foundation, there is no fee to participate.

“Johnny Appleseed” is an MCT favorite, a heart-warming adventure with roles for up to 60 students. No advance preparation or experience is necessary. The students will audition on Monday, July 26, and will receive their cast assignments on the spot. Rehearsals will be held each day, with a varied schedule based on ages and roles. On Saturday, July 31, the actors will hit the stage for two performances, at 3 and 5:30 pm. 

This year, in keeping with COVID guidelines, advance registration is required. If spaces exist, walk-ups will be accepted on Monday morning. 

To sign up, go to or get a registration form at the cultural center, located at 540 NE Highway 101 in Lincoln City, which is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday through Sunday. For more information, call 541-994-9994.
