The Missoula Children's Theatre is coming to Eastend.

Auditions for school age children for the performance of Hansel and Gretel will happen Monday March 21 at 3:30 p.m. in the Eastend Memorial Hall.

All school age children are welcome and there is no preparation necessary.

Linda Wig from the Eastend Arts Council explains why this is such a great experience for kids saying, "Small town kids need big ideas. And if they are able to have their world expanded by having visitors come in and kind of challenge them beyond what their knowledge and  comfort zones are, I think that they may find a spark that would lead them forward into new directions in their lives."

Wig says they've had between 25 and 35 kids in past performances.

The performances go Saturday March 26 in the Memorial Hall, at two and 7 p.m.

Admission is $7 for adults and $3 for kids.
