Missoula Children’s Theater

MCTPosterWhat starts as a lazy day at the beach quickly turns into mystery and adventure when the search for Blackbeard’s treasure begins. Tales both past and present lead us on a search of untold riches. Just where have Blackbeard and his crew hidden their legendary treasure? Grab some sun screen and come on down to the beach and get ready to solve the mystery of BLACKBEARD THE PIRATE!
