Missoula Children's Theatre

This year, when MCT came to town, they brought in "The Princess and The Pea". Not a lot of kids tried out, so parts that usually go to bigger kids went to the not-so-big kids. Kathleen ended up with one of the lead roles ~ the Pea! Bob was a tree biter (we're still not totally sure *what* that is! )
Kathleen "The Pea", and Bob "Tree Biter"
They both did a terrific job! One other special thing about this year is that the PBS program, Newshour with Jim Lehrer did a special on MCT. Correspondent Jeffrey Brown came to Plummer, and interviewed some of the kids (Kathleen was one), Miss Lori, and the MCT directors. They taped the kids doing their play, and as a result, our girls were on TV tonight!
We don't get TV , so we had to watch it on the computer. I thought I would share it here. It runs about 8 1/2 minutes, and if your internet speed is anything like ours, it'll probably take it an hour to buffer, but it's a neat little piece. Hopefully I can get it to work!
