Playwright acclaimedLake County News
LAKE COUNTY - The New Prairie Winds Community Theatre in Crosby N.D., selected Connor Snyder's play, "The Rhinestone Ranger" to kick-off the opening of their new theatre.
The play was presented through the Meadowlark Arts Council to a "turnaway" crowd including the First Lady of North Dakota, Nancy Jones Shafer and the Lieutenant Governor, Rose Marie Myrdal. The Governor's office sent a lovely note expressing their enjoyment of the play.
Snyder has written and published 15 children's plays and stories over the past five years. Most of the plays have debuted in various Lake County schools with Lake County children performing. Because Snyder has licensed the production of her plays to arts councils and public schools all over the U.S., performances such as this one in North Dakota have been repeated many times in cities large and small in various states of the country.
Snyder expressed her appreciation to the Lake County community, its school administrators, teachers, arts council and most of all, the wonderful children of Lake County for their encouragement during the past eight years.

Meadowlark Arts Council is presenting the one-act comedy entitled, "The Rhinestone Ranger, " by Connor Snyder. It is directed by Lewis and Mike Loken, with assistance from Robin Riveland and Tammy Stenson.
The play is a take-off on the westerns of the 1950's and 60's and pokes a little fun at shows such as "Gunsmoke" and "The Lone Ranger".

Other cast members include Brittney Silveria, Laura Enerson, Seanna Sparks, Sarah Sandberg, Theresa Espeseth, Nicholas Riveland, Zachery Riveland, Evan Andrist, Michael Lund, Kelsey Myers, Erika Erickson, Hannah Verlinde and Vannessa Pederson.
There will be a set with a western motif, including saloon girls, mountain women, and Indians. The players will all be in costume.
Members of Communities That Care are helping with the production as the summer activity for kids, CTC members will assist with preparation of the staging, costuming, lighting and sound effects.
Another production will be done during the school year, Loken said.
"The goal is to develop a core of young actors and actresses that will be able to fit into a larger production in a couple of years."
