Paramount Theatre Education and Outreach Program

This years’ Arts Camp for Educators and Teaching-Artists confronts some of the most persistent challenges for those working in education.

A registration fee of $50 allows you to take as many of the 20 offerings on Tuesday and Wednesday as you would like-what a deal! Stay all day - bring a bag lunch and eat with friends in the studios, or enjoy one of the many unique and wonderful restaurants near the Paramount.
This year, graduate level credit for all sessions is available from Pacific University at a cost of $62 per credit up to 3 credits per course. Registration forms will be distributed and completed at Arts Camp. We will collect completed forms and checks covering tuition and submit to Pacific U. More information is available online. CEU’s will also be issued for all of the classes you attend.
Deadline for registration is Monday, June 6, but many classes have limited enrollment so register EARLY to ensure a place.

The conference will be held on July 9-11, 2016 at St. John's University in Collegeville, MN (about 20-minutes west of St. Cloud, 90-minutes north of the Twin Cities). Topics for this first-ever statewide conference will range across types of theaters and areas of expertise, from artistic to administrative, production to technical, making to managing. Don't miss these three days of keynotes, breakouts, hands-on sessions, and plenty of social/networking time. Overnight accommodations are plentiful and affordable, so consider making a retreat of it.
Funding and support generously provided by the McKnight Foundation, Metropolitan Regional Arts Council and the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
This activity is funded, in part, by appropriations from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State's general fund, and its arts and cultural heritage fund that was created by a vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
Granite City Folk Society
May 19, 2016
Peter Mayer is a songwriter's songwriter (see comments by David Wilcox and Janis Ian below), a serious guy ("Holy Now") who is also pretty funny ("Driving with My Knee"), and a bunch of click-stops in between ("Dr. Seuss," "Ordinary Day," "Brand New Harley"). We'll have a whole evening to see how much of his range he can cover. (By the way, this is not the other Peter Mayer, or the other other Peter Mayer--this is our Minnesota Peter Mayer. Accept no Google substitutes.)
This will be our first event at Unity Spiritual Center (931 5th Ave N, Sartell), a venue with a capacity of nearly 200. This will be a general-seating concert, doors open at 7:00. (Map to the Center: http://unityspiritualcentercm.org/map/)
