The word “audition” may evoke anxious thoughts for a child whose experience with the stage is minimal. But for children who want to perform in the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “The Tortoise Versus the Hare,” an audition is much less stressful than one might think, said Jonna Michelson, tour marketing director for the group based in Missoula, Mont. “It’s a group process,” she said. “… It’s a gentle process in that regard. Children don’t have to have experience to be comfortable participating.”
