The hard work of dozens of Rogue Valley kids goes before the public in two performances today.

The Missoula Children's Theatre is staging showings of "Rumpelstiltskin" at 3 and 7 p.m. at the Craterian Ginger Rogers Theater, 23 S. Central Ave., Medford. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for kids 1-12.

Directors from the children's theater arrived in Medford early this week and auditioned local kids for roles in the play. Children who earned parts have been rehearsing all week for today's performances.
