“I think the show went over really well,” said Josh Gennings, Supervisor for Shell Theatre and Events. “I was really impressed by what the kids were able to do.”

The Missoula Children’s Theatre is a youth theatre program that aims to help the development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts. The program provides two professional actors/directors who travel to a community, and within a week, prepare and perform a show using local youth actors.

“The Missoula Children’s Theatre is a great organization that comes in with everything they need,” said Gennings. “They’ve got the sets, and the scripts, and the costumes, everything that the kids will need. Then they actually create the show right here in our community.”

Fort Saskatchewan youth met up at the Shell Theatre on Monday, Nov. 7 for auditions. The company accommodated with parts available for children of all ages. The 27 kids that were selected for the play then had only one week of rehearsals before presenting the play to audiences.

“The kids come together so quickly on this and really make it a fun event for everyone involved,” commented Gennings “That’s what I love is the camaraderie between the cast members. And the best part about it is that they have so much fun that they come back and do it again year after year.”

Nearly 500 people came out on Nov. 11 to watch the Theatre’s adaptation of Hansel and Gretel.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre has been putting on productions at the Shell Theatre for the past ten years, coming back each year with a new and fresh production.

“It really was a lot of fun,” said Gennings. “We’ve been doing really great here at the Shell Theatre putting on some great shows, and there are even more great productions coming up!”
