KOOSKIA -- For the first time in many years, Missoula Children’s Theater, Inc. was brought back to the Clearwater Valley this past week with the performance of Aladdin on Saturday, Feb. 21.
The show was a complete success with an audience of 249, a fund-raising total of approximately $1,400, and a talent packed cast of local kids. Carol Gibler served as accompanist and Clearwater Valley Film Production out of Stites filmed the performance and rehearsals.
The show was brought to the valley by the Clearwater Valley School Supporters Parent Teacher Student Association (CVSS PTSA), and would not have been possible without the strong outpouring of volunteers from the community, and financial sponsorship from local businesses, and community donors.
