Missoula Children's Theater Presents Pinocchio Auditions
Geppetto fashioned a puppet in the image of a small boy. Even as the lonely and kind woodcarver worked far into the night, old Geppetto was not aware that the wood had come from the trunk of an enchanted tree. But the Blue Fairy was aware as she watched from afar and gave to that puppet the gift of life. Thus begins the Missoula Children's Theatre adaptation of one of the most beloved children’s stories–Pinocchio. Join our woodenhead as he dances with Geppetto’s charming toy and travels the road to Pleasure Isle.

Dave Camac & Laura Joy
Back in the 1960s, Greenwich Village was the center of the Folk music universe. On any given night you could see performers like Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul & Mary, Bob Dylan and more. This show takes you back to a simpler time when it was all about the lyrics and emotional delivery. Join us for “A Night in Greenwich Village,” featuring guitar virtuoso Dave Camac and acoustic songstress Laura Joy. Camac, who has been described as a “soulful Willie Nelson,” has been a staple in the folk and country scene for more than 40 years. Laura Joy’s brand of acoustic song combines percussive finger picking with a remarkably buoyant voice, drawing a range of comparisons from Joni Mitchell to Natalie Merchant.
