Mouse River Players

Mouse River Players is Minot’s oldest community theatre. We began in 1971, and since that year we’ve performed in various locations in and around the Minot area. Youth programs and family theatre shows have always been a part of our season.

In 2004 we purchased “The Old Labor Temple” in downtown Minot. Volunteer efforts continue to improve the building and make it a comfortable setting for live theatre presentations and community uses. In 2006, we named the theatre “The Arlene” in honor of longtime arts supporter Arlene Saugstad.
