Treasure Island!
from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Performances at 10:00am and 2:00pm Missoula Children's Theatre takes pride in presenting an original adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s epic novel featuring a cast of local youth. Young Jim Hawkins, a mischievous lad, lives with his Mother and six Sisters in a seaside village on the coast of Maine. The year is 1782 and the American War for Revolution is waning. Longing for adventure, Jim comes under the hypnotic spell of the legendary pirate, Long John Silver. With a ragged treasure map in hand and the villainous Silver as his seeming mentor, Jim sails uncharted seas with a flock of Gulls as guides. Always up for adventure, Jim’s Ruffian friends say farewell to their Village parents and serve as cabin boys for Silver and his band of hilarious (although unsavory) Pirate types. Once on the island, nights are sleepless as true colors are revealed in our hero’s quest for the proverbial happy ending. Then - at last - the treasure is found and, hand in hand, we’re homeward bound. www.mctinc.org/mct-tour ATTENTION: Auditions for Treasure Island will occur Monday, January 15, 2018, 4:15 p.m. at Heritage Center.

As of 2008, Ondekoza launched a new project under the title of “Music & Rhythms”. The project aims to “connect the children of world through musical experience”.

The Nashville Celts
from 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
The Nashville Celts are led by musician/songwriter/producer Ric Blair. Ric Blair, is also the founder of their two popular concept shows, Roots of Great American Music and Christmas with The Celts. The Nashville Celts pack concert halls around the world including The Grand Ole Opry, The Ryman Auditorium, The Lincoln Center, and many other Performing Arts Centers, Theaters and large Casinos. The Nashville Celts have shared the stage with a diverse range of specials guests and artists including Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh of Altan, Vince Gill, Irish singer Cathy Jordan of Dervish, Ricky Skaggs, Riverdance piper Ivan Goff from Dublin, Patty Loveless, Braveheart/Titanic piper Eric Rigler, and Tim O’Brien just to name a few. The Nashville Celts lineup features founder Ric Blair on vocals, guitars, bodhran, and piano, Laura McGhee from Dundee, Scotland on vocals and fiddle plus an ensemble of world class musicians playing uilleann pipes, Irish whistles, banjo, mandolin, bass, drums and always crowd pleasing Irish step dancers. The music of The Nashville Celts is uniquely original. When asked about their musicial style Blair says, 'I’m proud of my Irish/Scottish roots, but I am equally proud of my American music roots. So, our music has become a product of blending the two.' Blair credits the group’s popularity to their melding of modern American hit songs and sounds with organic Celtic instruments as well as the success of their PBS-TV specials. That hybrid sound and historical evolutionary process from the roots of Celtic-American immigrants to today’s most popular music is also fully depicted in the band’s new production entitled Roots of Great American Music. This high energy production demonstrates how Irish music influenced the development of American bluegrass, country, and pop music. Early in his career, Ric Blair was a promising jazz major at the University of Cincinnati’s prestigious College Conservatory of Music. A chance encounter changed the entire course of his life. 'A buddy of mine said 'Hey there’s this Irish group playing tonight,’ American-born and Nashville based Blair remembers. It took a little prodding, but he agreed to give the concert a shot. “I opened the doors, and people were literally dancing on the tables,'says Blair. 'The music was so happy. As soon as I heard the pipes and Irish whistle, something in my blood hit me and said ‘this is what I want to do’.' Today, Blair reigns as one of the country’s most respected purveyors and historians of Celtic music. In 2015, The Celts appeared on PBS TV show Music City Roots. In March of 2016 performed at The Bluegrass Underground and will soon host another PBS special called Roots of Great American Music which will feature some of the world's most famous Country music, Irish music, and pop stars as special guests. The Nashville Celts are booked by MPI Talent Agency and managed by the well known entertainment industry figure, Bruce Garfield.
