Our Mission & Vision

Prior Lake Players (PLP) is a volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit, performing arts educational group formed for the express purpose of producing and performing live theatrical entertainments, including both established and original scripts, and providing training and experience to its members in artistic and technical aspects of live theatre.

Additionally, we work with the Scott County area community and school system to promote charitable, civic and educational enterprises and a sense of community pride and unity.

Frequently Asked Questions

1How can I get involved with Prior Lake Players?
View our Get Involved page!
2When do you begin seating for the show?
We begin seating 30 minutes prior to showtime.
3Do you have assigned seats?
The seating for most performances is general admission, which means first-come, first-served. If your ticket doesn’t have a seat number, the show is general admission. We recommend coming early if you want to be seated in a specific section of the auditorium.
4Can you accommodate individuals who can’t climb stairs?
We have auditorium-style seating at Twin Oaks, and there is a flat area between sections. When you arrive at the school, check in at the ticket area, and we’ll have an usher escort you to either an end row or seating the flat area – depending upon your need/request. No stair climbing is necessary.
5Can I buy tickets at the door and is that the same price?
We offer cash or credit card purchases at the door. Some shows will sell out, so if you want tickets for a specific show, we highly recommend ordering online.
6Why do you charge a fee when I order tickets online?
This fee is paid directly to Eventbrite for their service. Eventbrite helps us manage our audience by informing us how many tickets are sold ahead of time, tracking how much income we’ve received, recording audience data for future planning, and allowing us to check people at the door without processing cash transactions. As a 100% volunteer organization, people working in the lobby are doing multiple tasks for the theatre while managing families and jobs of their own. We make the ticket fee transparent rather than rolling it into the price, because we pay fees for each performance based on the sales price for the tickets, so more of your ticket dollars go into supporting future shows locally.
7What theatre education options do you offer?
We realize there’s strong demand for theatre education in Prior Lake, and we’re exploring ways to offer programs through community education or in collaboration with local groups. In the meantime, there’s a list on our website of nearby theatre education options you might want to explore.
8Do you perform any summer theatre?
We don’t currently have a summer production scheduled. We suggest checking Minnesota Association of Community Theatres (MACT) and Minnesota Playlist for local production/audition dates. If we add a summer show to our programming, we’ll announce it to our mailing list and social media channels, so we encourage you to subscribe if you haven’t already, and/or connect with us at the social media links below.
