The Tortoise and the Hare & Other Fables by Aesop

This collection of fables includes many favorites such as “The Conceited Crow,”  “The Fox and the Grapes” and, of course, the story of the fast talking, fast moving Hare who learns from his friend the Tortoise that “slow and sure wins the race.”   Full of fun and lively action involving the entire audience.

Featuring the professional Summer Theatre company, Popcorn Theatre has been entertaining generations of families with live theatre based on favorites of children’s literature.

  1. Do the children come and audition for these summer plays or is the cast already picked?
    My son is in 4th grade and has been in the Missoula plays since kindergarten and just loves it!! I would like to find things for him to do over the summer to enhance his passion for theater.
    Please get back to me. Thank you.

    • So glad your son is involved in theatre. Tibbits Summer Theatre and Tibbits Popcorn Theatre feature a company of professional actors, designers and theatre technicians hired by Tibbits from across the country. If there are youth needed for a show then we hold auditions at the theatre, but this summer does not have any youth roles. We do have two special activities which may be of interest. Backstage Pass on July 13 gives participants a behind-the scenes experience tied to the performance of Magic Rocks. We will also be presenting the Youth Theatre Workshop July 15-28. Watch for details on the website in the next couple of weeks.

  2. Hi, I was wondering about your ticket prices for the Popcorn Theatre series. Also, do you need to purchase tickets in advance? Are the seats reserved or general admission?

    Thank you for getting back to me,
