Frog Prince at Shell Theatre
This week, Fort Saskatchewan is again hosting Missoula Childrenâ€™s Theatre, an international touring program that visits nearly 1,300 communities each year. Â Fort Saskatchewan has hosted this program in the past; on this visit, Missoula Childrenâ€™s Theatre will be working with a cast of over forty young local actors from Kindergarten to Grade 12, to present â€śThe Frog Prince.â€ť Â The visit will culminate in two fully-staged, public musical performances on Saturday, November 13th at the Shell Theatre.
Missoula Childrenâ€™s Theatre is certainly an extremely innovative organization, with a mission to encourage â€śthe development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts.â€ť Typically, a team of two tour actor/directors arrive at the start of a residency — bringing with them a set, costumes, props, and make up — but no cast.
Local youth actors then audition and are chosen for the production, which is then rehearsed in the course of just a few days before being presented to the public. The program aims to help develop creativity, social skills, goal achievement, communication skills and self-esteem.
