Join us for our first annual production of one acts written and directed by women, Women's One Acts. We have a selection of six new, original plays we think you are going to love.
Eden Prairie Players is producing its first ever Collection of Women's One Acts. Conscious of theater's influence in the community, Eden Prairie Players wholeheartedly decided to establish a Women's One Acts festival in order to increase opportunities for women-identified theatrical artists. We selected plays written by women across the country and hired female directors from the local theater community to helm them. But we think the universal themes explored in these plays will appeal to women and men alike. This year, the Women's One Acts festival debuts with six incredible comedies and dramas giving voice to thirty-two actors, directors, and playwrights. Come prepared for laughs and tears as we celebrate women in theater!
May 4th, 5th, 11th, and 12th, 7:30 pm.

This year, Eden Prairie Players will be presenting two one acts productions. This May, we will present our inaugural Women's One Acts, featuring original works by female-identified playwrights. And in the fall, we will continue with our tradition of presenting A Collection of One Acts.
For the Women's One Acts, we narrowed 100 submissions down to 15 finalists, and held an open table reading on November 11 of those finalists, on which we based our final choices. We have started rehearsals and are excited to inaugurate this new production.
For the Collection of One Acts, we have collected 250 submissions. We have reviewed the plays and narrowed them down to 21 finalists. There will be a table reading for the fall production on April 21, starting at 10:00 AM, at the Eden Prairie Senior Center. Our friends and the public are encouraged to attend and participate.
The Eden Prairie Players Advisory Committee meets about once a month to choose upcoming productions, decide on actions, policies, and procedures, and plan for the future.
