J.K. Simmons "Please join campaign to grow Missoula Children’s Theatre’s gift"

I recently got a call from my old friend Michael McGill, who is the executive director of MCT (Missoula Children’s Theatre and Missoula Community Theatre) . He and I were undergrads in the University of Montana Music School about a hundred years ago.

McGill was wondering if I would lend a hand with something really important to him. He told me that a longtime supporter and board member of MCT has offered a gift of $250,000 to the organization if MCT can come up with the remaining $750,000 to make a million dollars. Not chump change, by any means, but something worthwhile, for sure.

J.K. Simmons writes from Studio City, Calif. Simmons’ acting career started in 1975 at the Missoula Community Theatre, where he played the "knife grinder" in "Oliver," although he is perhaps better known for the recent Oscar he received for best supporting actor in the film "Whiplash."
