The Missoula Children’s Theatre is coming to Payson to cast local children for a production of “Betty Lou and the Country Beast.”

The theater directors and the students of both the high school and junior high drama programs are working to bring Missoula Children’s Theater to Payson in this month.

This is a production company from Montana that provides a great experience for children in kindergarten through the 12th grade. Between 50 and 60 youngsters will have a chance to be part of a professional theatre production.

Any child interested in being in or helping with the play will audition Monday, Aug. 13, after school. Those selected will rehearse Monday through Thursday after school and do shows Friday afternoon and Saturday evening.

These are fun, lively shows based on old stories, but with a modern twist. This year, MCT has chosen to present “Betty Lou and the Country Beast” which is a country version of “Beauty and The Beast.”

Choral Society auditions

The Payson Choral Society invites you to try out at 5:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 13 at the United Methodist Church, 414 N. Easy St.

The big holiday concert will be Saturday, Dec. 15. Rehearsals for the Christmas 2012 Concert begin the same evening as tryouts, at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 13 at the same location.

If you like to sing, want to have fun with a great group of people, and you are willing to commit to weekly rehearsals come be a part of the Payson Choral Society!
