Exactly two months ago today, we had the last live performance on stage at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts. Since that time, we’ve faced many challenges and adjustments, including the closure of our building, cancellation or postponement of all our live programs through May, making hard decisions to lay-off some of the staff, while others have been working from home, with their 4-legged office mates. In the midst of these distinct challenges, however, also came opportunity, resulting in the creation of MCT Playdate—an online program for families, new Facebook contests and audience engagement activities, while most recently being able to bring back several home staff to sew thousands of Made in Montana utility masks. We are also focusing on the deep cleaning of our facility and mapping out (literally) the ways we can maintain physical distancing and make other adjustments that are crucial to our community’s safety and comfort when it is time to re-open MCT. That’s the general news, but we invite you to visit the specific program pages on the site to hear what’s happening with the International Tour, Missoula day camps, and other topics most important to you. We will get updates posted as soon as possible, so please keep coming back to the site. There is much uncertainty surrounding the coming months, but we ARE certain we want to see you back at MCT. Until then, be well.
