The MCT Center for the Performing Arts normally sees 50 employees a day,as it’s a three-pronged operation. It’s the home base for Missoula Children’s Theatre’s globe-traveling touring operation, the Missoula Community Theatre’s seasons of plays, and it hosts community events, too. In February, 117 people worked for MCT. They’ve had to lay off 80% of their staff, including 66 touring actors who were scattered all over the country.Once it’s safe to do so, “the most important thing is getting those people working again,” said Executive Director Michael McGill. “It’s not just the artistic expression and what that does for the community. There are families, livelihoods at stake here. Some people don’t think about that in the arts much, but golly, it’s just as true as anything else.” The productions have been called off for the spring, and the nonprofit is hoping to proceed with its 50th anniversary season in the fall.
