Climb Theater to perform at Grand Marais Library June 1
The Arrowhead Library System (ALS) invites you to a delightful performance of “Raven and Grandmother Mouse” by Climb Theater at Grand Marais Public Library, Friday, June 1, 2012 at 3:30 p.m.
“Raven and Grandmother Mouse” is a lively adaptation of the Pacific Northwest folktale about truth and hard work. Children will enjoy seeing the story of Raven, a crafty bird, who wastes away the gathering season dancing while Bear, Squirrel, Beaver and Mouse prepare for the coming winter. Raven attempts to make up for his laziness by trying to trick Mouse into hosting a party for him to ensure he has food for the winter. With a live performance and related activities, children 3 - 8 years old will love this program.
Climb Theater is a 2009 winner of The Sara Spencer Artistic Achievement Award from the American Alliance of Theatre and Education (AATE). The only other Minnesota theatre to be so honored was the Children's Theatre Company, which won the award in 1979.
Admission to the event is free thanks to sponsorship by the Arrowhead Library System and money from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
