PRT 50th Anniversary

The PRT 50th anniversary celebration has been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Please check back next summer!

Prairie Repertory Theatre is celebrating 50 years! It seems just like yesterday that some of us were in Prairie Rep. Oh, wait a minute ... some of us were! Whether or not you were in Prairie Rep 50 years ago or last year, you will not want to miss the 50th Anniversary Celebration! Mark your calendars for June 26–28, 2020. What a great opportunity to connect with friends and mentors in the new Oscar Larson Performing Arts Center.

The weekend kicks off with the first ever PRT Miscast Cabaret Concert, an evening not to be missed and that will certainly not be forgotten! Throughout the weekend you will reminisce about the past, attend an exciting PRT production and hang with your old and new friends at the 50th Anniversary banquet.

Don’t miss out … register today!!!

Prairie Repertory Theatre Alumni present a Miscast Cabaret Concert

MIscast Cabaret

Prairie Repertory Theatre Alumni present their very first Miscast Cabaret Concert at The Oscar Larson Performing Arts Center in celebration of 50 years for PRT! Our talented performers include many PRT Alumni from all over the United States. These extraordinary singers will be performing songs from roles in which they would never be cast. There will be a diverse selection of musical theater including music from “Wicked,” “Sweeney Todd,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” “Miss Saigon,” “Bridges of Madison County,” and many more. And expect the unexpected!

The PRT Miscast Cabaret Concert is for mature audiences and open to the public. Funds raised from the concert will support Prairie Repertory Theatre.

  • Producer: Billy Wilburn (PRT staff)
  • Coordinator: Christy Kayser (PRT Alumni)
  • Melissa Hauschild-Mork (PRT staff) will choreograph a piece for former PRT dancers
