Our winter play for 2019 will be Bus Stop, by William Inge, directed by Stephen Houtz. We're excited to announce that we have selected a new venue for the winter show this year: The Loading Dock Theatre at PiM Arts High School, 7255 Flying Cloud Dr., Eden Prairie. This new, more open, dynamic space is a great fit for the innovative directions we want to take for our winter plays, and the parking situation should be a big improvement over the high school as well.
This year we are continuing the new production we introduced last year: Women's One Acts (WOA!), a collection of one act plays by women and directed by women, intended to increase opportunities for female and female-identified theater artists.
The summer musical will be State Fair, with Music by Rodgers, Richard, Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, Book by Tom Briggs and Louis Mattioli. Directed by Stephen Houtz, musical director Melissa Warhol, and choreographer Brianna Belland.
The Children's Theater Workshop production will be the delightful Bedtime Stories (As told by our Dad) (who messed them up) by Ed Monk. Directed by Dr. Gina Light with assistant director Chris Veninga.
We will finish up the 2019 season in September with the 15th annual Collection of One Acts. We are working on selecting the plays for this production in the upcoming months.
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.
