Award winning theatre troupe to perform Friday


The Minnesota SkyVault Theatre Company of Rochester, Minn., is coming to Cloquet  for one performance only. The public is invited to the one-act musical “Skirmish of Wit: Your Imaginary Forces” at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13, at the Encore Performing Arts Center.

The theatre company is a regular act at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and performs at various festivals throughout the state and country.

“We got to know this young group of actors very well while performing at the Minnesota Association of Community Theatres One Act Festival held in March of this year,” said Joel Soukkala, general manager of County Seat Theater. “They went on to represent our state at the national festival. Their original words and music are as amazing as each performer. It is a show everyone in the family will thoroughly enjoy!”

The Minnesota SkyVault Theatre Company creates and tours high-energy, audience-immersive, award-winning original performances developed through collaborative improvisation, both musically and dramatically. They re-imagine the slapstick comedy and romance inherent in Shakespeare, while playing an indie-folk and jazz soundtrack on multiple acoustic instruments.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students and can be purchased by calling the box office at 218-878-0071 or going online at
