“Aladdin” performance delights a large audience at CWC

(Riverton, WY)  Ready to go with only one week of intensive rehearsals under their belts, local student actors performed the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “Aladdin” to a nearly packed house at CWC’s Robert A. Peck Arts Center auditorium on Saturday.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre Tour project is partially supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and support from the Montana Arts Council, with Washington State tour sponsor Cosmic CrispⓇ and with local partnerships with Arts In Action, Central Wyoming College, and Fremont County School District #25.

According to the program notes…before COVID, MCT had worked with 65,000 children in more than 1,100 communities in all 50 states and 17 countries each year. Now, in its 50th year of touring, the production is a part of Missoula Children’s Theatre’s international tour that “fosters developmental life skills in more than a million kids.”


Saturday’s performance was directed by MCT’s Kamlin Cox and Emily Nachtigal (who played the part of the “Genie”), with Assistant Directors Nataleigh Gambler, Justus Hardman, Knox McFarland, and Kaytelynn Richardson. Music was provided by piano accompanist Mary Lea Wolf.
