Missoula Children’s Theatre Presents The Tortoise Versus the Hare

TH-LOGO-BW

Avon, CO – Audiences of all ages will get a fresh look at an old favorite on Friday, June 16th and Saturday, June 17th when the Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) and 20 local children present The Tortoise Versus the Hare. The free performances will take place on the Avon Performance Pavilion stage in Harry A. Nottingham Park, and will be the culmination of a week-long residency in Avon.


Playing the title characters, the wise Coach Shelley Bowlback and the conceited Curly Hare, are local students Santiago Wilkins and Bianca Lipton.  Other featured characters include Tori Wilkins as Esther Bunny, Maddie Heil as Little Bonnie Bunny and the Weasels played by Tabitha Schroeder and Griffin Heil. The scaly Reptiles will be played by Valentina Campos, Kingsley Blair and Nella Hodul, and Ariana Lipton will play the Thespian Troupe. Appearing as Curly’s rowdy posse will be Ashlyn Cookham, Hawkins Blair, Mia Hodul, Keanna Boutet, Tieg Fruin, Tomas Alvarez Bayon and Kristina Shamshyryn. Catie Kidoo and Cole Fruin will play the TV Crew.


All MCT shows are original adaptations of classic children’s stories and fairytales . . . a twist on the classic stories that you know and love. The Tortoise Versus the Hare will charm audiences with its wit and humor, and spectators will be absolutely stunned by how much these young actors have accomplished in their week with MCT. The free weekend performances starring area youth are sure to be smashingly entertaining, and all community members are encouraged to come support these young actors in MCT’s debut performance in Avon!


The Tortoise Versus the Hare will be presented at the Avon Performance Pavilion on Friday, June 16th at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 17th at 3:00 p.m. The performances are free! The Missoula Children’s Theatre residency in Avon is presented locally by the Town of Avon. For more information, visit www.avon.org/mct.
