About the People

We are the ……


There is something uniquely wholesome about a community making its own entertainment. Performers grow personally and as a group and our audiences are proud of them and supportive of their efforts. Everyone likes to live in a great community, and happenings at the Prairie Arts Center make our community a richer place to live. There are ample opportunities for involvement: on the stage, behind the scenes, or in the audience. We are thankful for and proud of the strong history and commitment to theater arts that our community has. We welcome you to take part.

The Lac qui Parle Players, Inc. was formed in 1984 as a means to stimulate and encourage theatrical activities, providing local performers with opportunities to share their talents. Our rural community has been very supportive of the arts and events are well attended. Some recent projects include the popular Country Christmas Show, which has been running for over 15 years during the Christmas Season; Summer Shakespeare projects for high school and college aged youth; Community Musicals; and some smaller productions such as one-act plays and variety shows.

The Lac qui Parle Players are always looking for new members! Membership is free and would give you a great opportunity to participate in all facets of theatrical performances and musical productions, from start to finish!  Your volunteer services could include anything from program ideas and show production to prop and make up crew, marketing, or costume work!  The sky’s the limit!  If you have recently moved to the area or have retired and find yourself with extra time on your hands, please join us!  It’s a great way to meet new people and become engaged in your community!

If you are one of those people who may be interested in taking the stage for upcoming plays and musical productions, the Lac qui Parle Players would love to include your contact information on a casting candidate list.  They would then be able to keep you informed of upcoming productions and acting opportunities!  Participation is very rewarding, and who knows, you may find a hidden talent you didn’t know you had!  Contact any member of the Lac qui Parle Players to receive upcoming casting information.
