Climb Theatre kicks off Cloquet Public’s Summer Programs for Kids

A delightful performance of “Raven and Grandmother Mouse” by Climb Theatre will be part of the first week of summer program activities at the Cloquet Public Library at 1 p.m., Thurs., June 7, 2012. The program is free of charge and open to the public. The lively adaptation of the Pacific Northwest folktale honors 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. Children 3-8 years old will love this program. Climb Theatre 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 created through the passage of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment by the vote of Minnesotans in November 2008.
