Welcome to our youth program! MCP Kids is open to kids in the Monmouth schools as well as the surrounding areas. Headed up by local thespian Danny Gay, the youth of the area will work to develop their stage presence through children's productions and classes offered throughout the season. It is also a great opportunity for teens to learn the tricks of the trade - directing, light design and operation, stage management and more! MCP Kids started in our 2018-2019 season! Keep an eye on this page for auditions and upcoming opportunities! FMI - contact us at MCPKidsMaine@gmail.com
Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon KIDS is an adaptation of the fourth of Mary Pope Osborne's award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series, which has sold more than 100 million copies and is available in more than a hundred countries around the world. This time around, Jack and Annie’s tree house takes them to an exotic island with pirates, where the two discover the power of friendship and the simple pleasures in everyday life.
The two siblings return to visit the magic tree house on a dreary, rainy day. They find a book where the sun is shining and the waves are crashing, so they wish to travel to this tropical place. They realize that they are in the eighteenth-century Caribbean, the time of pirates! The siblings meet Captain Bones, a mean old pirate who captures the two and forces them to help him find buried treasure. It's up to Jack and Annie to find their way back to the tree house and make their way home.
