This year, Missoula Children's Theatre will be bringing The Emperor's New Clothes to BPACC from June 13 to 17, 2022.
No registration is required. This year's camp is returning to the open audition process.
On Monday, June 13, interested campers and their parents should come to BPACC at 8:30 AM to complete paperwork before auditions begin at 9 AM. Auditions will last for two hours, after which Missoula staff will announce who has been cast. This year's cast is capped at 40 children. If more than 40 children audition, some may not be cast.
This camp is free to attend and is open to children going into grades 1 through 12.
This camp will include a final performance, which is open to the public. Tickets are $10 and will be on sale the week of the camp.

“Dress for success” is good advice that the Emperor takes whole-heartedly, wanting to impress new friends. But where to stop? When the clothes (and other people’s opinions) become more important than the people of the kingdom, trouble brews. To help their beloved Emperor find the way back to his heart, his true friends create an elaborate “birthday suit” for the Emperor to wear for his birthday parade celebration. The Emperor quickly and humbly learns that sometimes less is more!
