2017 – 2018 Season

A Year with Frog and Toad

Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe… all charm, A Year with Frog and Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.

A Christmas Carol

This timeless .Charles Dickens classic has been adapted for the stage by Kevin Neuharth, longtime face of Minot State University Summer Theatre. What better way to get into the Christmas spirit than to sit back and enjoy.

The Odd Couple

Unger and Madison are at it again! Florence Unger and Olive Madison, that is, in Neil Simon’s hilarious contemporary comic classic: the female version of The Odd Couple. Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, Ms. Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. The Pidgeon sisters have been replaced by the two Constanzuela brothers. But the hilarity remains the same.

January 5-7 and January 12-14

The Orphan Train

Play script by Aurand Harris.

A highly theatrical story, moving, amusing, and always tellingly human of nine orphans on an Orphan Train that left New York City on May 28, 1914, and traveled to midwestern towns in search of homes for the children.

Back by popular demand, The Orphan Train played to sold out audiences when it debuted on our stage.

It has been 11 years since Mouse River Players presented The Orphan Train in 2007.   The children who portrayed the orphans then are all grown up now.   We will be inviting the alumni of the 2007 production to return to portray adult roles in this new production.

March 9-11 and March 16-18

Twelve Angry Jurors

A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. “He doesn’t stand a chance,” mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts.
