Since 2013, I have primarily covered the Anoka-Hennepin and Spring Lake Park school districts as well as the city of Spring Lake Park for ABC Newspapers.

Northern Starz Children’s Theatre has undertaken one “krazy” show in its latest musical production.

“Krazy Kamp” runs May 12-21 at the Ramsey theater, 5300 Alpine Drive.

The show tells a tale of two camps: Camp John Smith for boys and Camp Pocahontas for girls.

With Camp John Smith in shambles, the boys disguise themselves to fit in with the girls at Pocahontas, but the transition isn’t a smooth one.

“Silliness ensues from there,” said Rachel Bohnsack, executive director of Northern Starz Children’s Theatre.

Thirty-four sixth- through 12th- graders are involved in the production, which is led by a team new to Northern Starz.

Maggie Greivell directs the show, Brad Gaspar is students’ vocal coach and Courtney Castleberry and McKayla Murphy choreographed the musical.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students and seniors 55 and older. They are available at www.northernstarz.org.

The curtain rises at 7 p.m. May 12, 13, 14, 19 and 20 with 2 p.m. matinees scheduled for May 13, 14, 20 and 21.
