All of us at the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) are very excited about Delta’s gift of flight. Delta Air Lines has donated four certificates for roundtrip travel from Missoula, Montana to Frankfurt, Germany.
You might wonder why MCT travels overseas. To explain, our core program is a weeklong theatre program for kids. MCT artists tour in pairs and cast local children at each location in an original musical such as Cinderella or King Arthur’s Quest. The children perform the show after just six days of rehearsals! We have proudly served military families for 22 years, and we have toured to overseas installations since 1998. Morale-building programs are so important to kids’ quality of life on base, especially for those with a deployed parent.
Our theatre program is so popular that some families plan their vacations around our annual visit. Many kids move with their families from base to base and getting involved with MCT at each location provides a reassuringly familiar way to have fun and make new friends.
Thank you, Delta Air Lines, for helping the Missoula Children’s Theatre “serve those who serve.”
