Escape the Tower with Rapunzel at the Schauer Center

July 11, 2014—Hartford, WI— Escape the towering imprisonment of Madame Gothel as Missoula Children’s Theatre brings Rapunzel to the Schauer Arts & Activities Center on Friday, August 15 at 7:00 pm and Saturday, August 16 at 1:00 pm. Local students bring to life an original musical adaptation for all to enjoy.

Missoula Children’s Theatre (MCT) provides a one-week intensive drama workshop at the Schauer Center starring local students entering grades 1-12 in a full-scale musical. Auditions will be held on Monday, August 11 at 10:00 am and last approximately 90-120 minutes. Registration begins at 9:30 am in the Schauer Center lobby. No advance preparation is necessary and there is no fee to audition, but audition is required for participation. Tuition is $50 for those cast in the production and includes enrollment in one MCT theater workshop and one complimentary ticket.

An original musical adaptation of the fairy tale, Rapunzel takes a frivolous frolic through the French countryside. It’s out of the tower and on the run as a zany cast of friends and foes help Rapunzel’s harrowing escape from the towering imprisonment of Madame Gothel. Add a dash of French flair and a pinch of personal triumph and friendship to make a truly unforgettable story.

Written and conceived by Michael McGill, Rapunzel is a 60-minute, family-friendly performance recommended for ages 4 and up. Those who attend will have the opportunity to meet the cast after the show.

Tickets to Rapunzel are $13 for adults, $11 for students, $8 for children (12 and under), and $5 for lap seats.
