Geppetto fashioned the 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 under the chisel 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 of all children's stories- PINOCCHIO. Join our wooden-head as he dances with Gepetto's charming toys, travels the road to Pleaseure Isle with Candlewick and his Crew, and is swindled by the unsavory Fox and Cat. After escaping the clutches of the evil puppetmaster, Stromboli, Pinocchio finds himself in trouble once more-this time swallowed by a monstrous whale. Very scary stuff! As Gepetto and the friendly Urchins spin their magical tale, we learn with Pinocchio that there are no shortcuts on the road to becoming a real, live boy.

Blizzards can come at any moment, so strap on some snowshoes and get ready to discover what it takes to overcome chilling obstacles, keep resilience alive, and melt down the Snow Queen's icy walls.

Can I attend the camp with my student?

We want each camper to be immersed in the experiences and lessons throughout the week.  To that end, parents & guardians are not permitted to attend camp sessions.  Parents, friends, and family members are invited to attend the free performances on Saturday. 

Can my student attend both weeks of camp?

Please note that while the shows have different songs and different scripts, both weeks of camp share very similar activities, games, and crafts.  

What is included with the tuition?

Camp T-shirt, Performance admission, interactive workshops and a special award. 

What is the cancellation policy?

A refund (less a $10 registration fee) is available with a 30 day notice prior to the start of the camp session.  Unfortunately refunds are not available within 30 days of the camp.

May students register for just one or two days of the camp?

Due to the performance-based nature of the camp, students are required to participate the entire week.

What is the check-out procedure after the final performance on Saturday?

All campers will need to change out of their costumes and turn in each costume piece to the show director.  Because of the large number of campers and costume pieces, it will take approximately 20 to 40 minutes once the show has ended before you may sign your child out. 

What are the performance times for Saturday?

There are two great performances to close each week of our Spotlight Summer Theatre Camp. On the Saturday of each camp we will present performances at 3:00 p.m. and also 5:30 p.m. Campers may not be checked out between performances and are expected to be present for both performances.
