In one short week the Missoula Directors cast, rehearsed, and presented the musical The Emperor’s New Clothes, featuring 31 local students from grades 1-12 in roles from the familiar tale with a Missoula Theatre twist. On Saturday, August 6 the cast performed two productions at St. Clair Memorial Hall for a delighted audience.
