CLOQUET — The County Seat Theater is a full of life this summer as nearly 150 young actors put on their best act.

The theater is currently in its third of four weeks of its annual Children’s Musical Theater, according to a news release.

Off Their Rockers

The show called "Off Their Rockers" takes place in a quiet, calm senior center. The atmosphere changes when the center director decides to use music and dance to add fun and excitement. Thirty new kids each week participate in the show, the news release said.

Remaining performances are 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. July 14. Shows are open to the public and tickets can be purchased at www.countyseattheater.com .

Game of Myths

The theater will begin production of its Young Adult Theater featuring actors age 12-21 in "Game of Myths." The Greek gods learn the Cloud Throne will soon be available, with Zeus telling them the throne will go to the god who is helpful, compassionate and caring, the news release said. In the final scene of the show, the gods gather for an Academy Awards-style show to learn what Zeus decided.

Performances will be held on at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. July 22 and are open to the public, as well. Both camps are full and registration is now closed.

Bee Friendly Arts Camp

Students in grades 5-8 can participate in the Bee Friendly Arts Camp, a partnership among the County Seat Theater Company, Reach Program for Youth-Adult Partnerships and Oldenburg Arts and Cultural Community.

The camp will use an art-based, service-learning approach through a student-led design process for creating curriculum, the news release said. The camp’s goal is to help students see that they can change the world with their creativity.

The camp will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 2-5 at the Encore! Performing arts Center. Participants can register online at www.countyseattheater.com .

Round About Art Show and Parking Lot Show

On Thursday, July 7, people can travel around Carlton County enjoying local art from 4-7 pm. Attendees can stop by the theater gallery and enjoy art by a number of local artists.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
