RATS! RATS! RATS!
Local students take part in week-long theater production
Local children had the opportunity to perform on stage Saturday evening at Woodfin Patterson Auditorium, thanks to the Brewton Council for the Arts bringing the Missoula Children’s Theatre to Brewton.
Children auditioned Monday after school and spent hours after school last week preparing for the performance of “The Pied Piper.”
The project was supported partially by the National Endowment of the Arts and in part by a grant from the Montana Arts Council, an agency of the state government and the National Endowment for the Arts.
