Youth actors to perform

Central Lakes College Theatre Department’s Adventures ’N Theatre will present Conrad Seiler’s comedy “The Clown Who Ran Away” Friday, May 20 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, May 21 at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the Dryden Theatre on the Brainerd campus. Adventures ’N Theatre is the department’s youth performing company designed for performers who are 7 to 17 years old. This is the story of Dodo (Molly Busch), the clown who runs away from the circus in search of adventure. On Main Street he meets many interesting people including Mrs. Frumpkins (Emma Ferrie) and her assistant, Alice (Madison Yeager) who make the best dolls in the world – life-size dolls that sing and dance, talk and do math. When the dolls are stolen it is up to Dodo to rescue them from two bumbling robbers (Matthew and Luke O’Reilly) with the help of Gladys (Lauryn Simonson and Emily Severson), a horse with perfect penmanship.
