First Nighters: A PLP Theatrical Tradition

First Nighters (Niters) – A Prior Lake Theater Tradition Since 1973!

What began as a fundraising event offering exclusive theater experiences for PLP’s top supporters has become a decades-long tradition in Prior Lake.

First Nighters (Niters) Today

PLP Opening Night typically includes an invitation-only “First Niters” after party for cast, crew, and members to celebrate the play’s success and bond as a “theater community”. Most First Nighters events include collectible stemware, barware or other such coveted swag.
