Prairie Wind Players


Got its start...

on a cold winter's night in 1979, five individuals met at the home of Tim & Kathy Ray.  We had indicated an interest in forming a community theatre in our area.  Kathy had been involved in a community theatre inVirginia, Minnesota, and liked what she had experienced.

At that meeting we decided "yes" we would form a theatre group.  Most of us had no theatre experience since high school days, but we decided that it would be fun to again get involved.

One of the first things we had to decide on was a name for our group.  The wind was blowing snow across the prairie that night and after several attempts Tim came up with "The Prairie Wind Players", a name which has stuck with us ever since.
