It's become something of a summer tradition in the lakes area.

Once every year, toward the end of June, a pair of actor-directors from the Missoula Children's Theatre in Missoula, Mont., makes the journey to Detroit Lakes for a weeklong children's theater workshop at the Historic Holmes Theatre.


Each year's workshop culminates in a live performance by the budding thespians -- and this year is no exception.
