Lakeshore Players is a small theater located in White Bear Lake. They put on several wonderful productions each year in an intimate setting. The talent is amazing and the sets are really incredible. I love going to this theater because you get to sit very close to the stage and all the seats have a great view. They put on a variety of shows and always do one geared towards children around the holidays. It's a great place to take your kids, as it's close to home and not overly formal or stuffy. The prices are also very reasonable.
During the summer months they run an acting camp which culminates with a production at the end. It's a great way for kids to get involved in acting.
