Dan Daredevil and pretty Betty Parker crash their plane at Nightmare Castle and begin to meet all the unusual characters that creep about in the musical spoof, "The Amazing Adventures of Dan Daredevil," by Tim Kelly. This fun musical is presented by the County Seat Theater Company's Youth Theater at the Encore! Performing Arts Center and Gallery this weekend at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5, and Saturday, Aug. 6, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 7.

American's number one hero, Dan Daredevil, along with Woof, the Wonder Dog, battle modern day pirates, dangerous creatures and an arch criminal known only as The Fog. This year's director, Larry Anderson, took on a big challenge, putting together a full-length musical for the kids in only a few weeks. Kaye Manty accompanies Arne Christiansen and Ole Kittleson on music. Assisting Anderson is 18-year-old actor Joe Gay, who is enrolled this fall at Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wis., seeking a theater degree. Also volunteering their time for the production are Joel Soukkala, Aleyse Chapin, Ruth Hanson and Sue Hanson.

Fifteen young enthusiastic cast members from all over Carlton County have been singing, dancing and acting in a theater day camp setting. Anderson also had several guest speakers from the theatre community - including Mike Rosen, Greg Anderson, Andy Roemhildt, Cheryl Kramer-Milder, Ruthie Zissos and Kris Nelson - come in to talk to the students about theater, adding to the students' educational experience. Walk-ins are welcome at each performance. For reservations, call 218-878-0071.
