The Saratoga Sun -

Missoula Children's Theatre back in Saratoga


Zachary Laux

Bel Oiler earned the title part as Rapunzel in auditions Monday night. She will share the role with Aubree Neville. The first performance is at 7 p.m. Friday, with an encore performance at 4 p.m. Saturday.

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 pinch of personal triumph and friendship, and this is a story the audience won't forget.

The Missoula Children's Theatre is presenting "Rapunzel" at 7 p.m. Nov. 8 and 4 p.m. Nov. 9 at the Platte Valley Community Center Theater.

The production includes more than 50 local students as they present an original musical adaptation of Rapunzel.
