Ada, MN -- Over 50 young actors and actresses from the Ada-Borup community have been working hard all week to put together a production of “Peter and Wendy” with help from the Missoula Children’s Theater. Co-directors Morganne Best and Rebecca Martin joined the KRJB Kaleidoscope Program on Thursday to chat about their traveling production. They gave a little background on the Missoula Children’s Theater and their production of “Peter and Wendy.”

Casting began on Monday and the students spend just two hours a day rehearsing on stage before the production is ready for showings here today. Martin and Best say by splitting up the groups and setting high expectations, they are able to accomplish a lot more in just a little bit of time.
