Dozens of local young people showed up to try to land a role in the Missoula Children's Theatre's production of "The Secret Garden."
The tryouts were held at Westview School in Estevan on September 16. Most of the youth were chosen to be part of the cast. They proceeded to go through several days of rehearsals so that they would know their parts for the play.
"The Secret Garden" will be performed September 21 at the Souris Valley Theatre's Frehlick Hall. Show times are at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. The Missoula Children's Theatre will supply some of the actors, but most of the cast will be local youth.
It's the first show this year through the Estevan Arts Council's Koncerts for Kids series.
