Our Towns screening @ The Arlene
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.
It is an ethos. It is both people and place. It is past, present, and future smashed together. It is community, relationships, and independent spirit. It is risk and opportunity. It is vibrancy and decay. It is taste, texture, sound, and smell. It is unfinished, evolving, and it is authentic. It is downtown. It is Minot.
Established in 2006, we are Minot's locally-owned, independent bookstore that specializes in new books, educational toys, and fun and quirky sidelines. We also boast a new event space with a resident artist featuring original framed art, notebooks, prints, and future bookmaking workshops for kids.
Come on in and see what makes us unique and let us help you find the perfect book for you or that wonderful special person in your life.
