The cast photo from the Eden Prairie Players production of “The Curious Savage” that was scheduled as the 2020 Winter Play. This production was fully rehearsed and had to be canceled on opening night due to social distancing rules. The production company is planning to bring this production to the stage in early 2021.

The Eden Prairie Players are looking for ways to continue inspiring members of the community by creating theater opportunities in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some goals to help the Eden Prairie Players are funding to explore and implement alternative COVID-safe productions, including a radio play and podcast; a permanent home for productions and storage space for props and costumes; expansion of programs to include children and teen workshops, a holiday production, outreach and more; a scholarship fund to help future actors; and a new lightboard.

To that end, the Friends of Eden Prairie Players, a support group established to ensure the future of community theater in Eden Prairie, is helping to raise funds.

The theater group has a full schedule of productions scheduled for 2021, starting with “The Curious Savage,” in March. In addition, the theater has chosen to support and address recent cultural and societal challenges by forming the I.D.E.A. (Inclusive, Diverse, Equitable, Accessible) Committee.
