About Hennepin Theatre Trust - Vibrant Theatres, Vibrant City
Hennepin Theatre Trust, owner of the historic Orpheum, State, Pantages and New Century Theatres, is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to arts-inspired community cultural development. We achieve our mission by presenting a rich mix of live performances, creating inspiring arts education experiences and advancing a thriving Hennepin Avenue cultural district in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Trust’s activities include presenting Broadway touring productions and the related Broadway Confidential series, concerts, comedy, speakers and other variety entertainment plus educational initiatives including our SpotLight Musical Theatre and SpotLight Critical Reviewer programs for high schools, Teen Ushers, the Access Program and Family Day events.
Welcome to Hennepin Theatre Trust – the non-profit owner of the State, Orpheum, Pantages and New Century Theatres and a spark for a vibrant city. Year-round, we open our doors and roll out the red carpet to welcome you to an array of events from the best of Broadway to music of many genres that make this city more culturally vital and economically successful. I’m enthusiastically inviting you to join us for a spell-binding night at the theatre, an enlightening educational experience, an unforgettable concert or some laugh-out-loud comedy. Hennepin Theatre Trust plays a pivotal role in making downtown Minneapolis an attraction to more than 500,000 people who visit our theatres each year. Your patronage not only supports the Trust in its work, but your involvement sustains the energy that is so essential to our city’s vibrant cultural environment.
When you join us in the audience of our magnificent historic venues, you enable us to better serve you and the greater community. A portion of each ticket purchased not only assists in the ongoing operation of these architectural gems, but when you become a Trust Donor your contributions help us expand opportunities to students through our SpotLight programs or create theatre opportunities through our Access program. When you contribute to the Trust, you can be confident that you are making a difference: 98% of each dollar you give supports programs directly serving our community!
We welcome your involvement and support as we continue to foster the range of cultural activities that so significantly impact downtown Minneapolis. I invite you to explore our website for more information about how you can share in our many exciting endeavors.
