The economy is in freefall, every day the news gives us something else to be terrified about, and things are so crazy politically that most people have forgotten there’s a war going on in Europe. You need a laugh! And lucky for you, tickets to this show cost less than what you’d pay to fill an F-150. The Brave New Workshop invites you to This Show is Cheaper than Gas– America on Empty. If you feel like your tank is on empty, then this is the show for you.
As the curtain rises on the 2022-2023 Bank of America Broadway on Hennepin season, Hennepin Theatre Trust is taking a moment to nod to the past as we welcome Wicked back to our stage. For 100 years, the world’s top talent has graced our stages, inspired generations of theatregoers and created positive change through the arts state-wide. We invite you to celebrate our historic theatres and contribute to the impact of the performing arts by donating to the Trust. As a special thank you, we’re gifting a commemorative piece of the Orpheum Theatre’s floorboard with a donation of $100 or more.
Hennepin Theatre Trust partnered with three youth groups from across Minnesota to present the Youth Art Exhibition. This exhibition features artwork from youth from the Minnesota African American Heritage Museum and Gallery, Pine Ridge Reservation and Best Buy Teen Tech Centers. The artwork displays the diverse perspectives, backgrounds and talent of these young artists and supports the Trust’s commitment to creating access to spaces and opportunities in the arts.
In the summer of 1997, Disney’s The Lion King made its world premiere in Minneapolis at the Orpheum Theatre before heading to Broadway. This newest centennial exhibit celebrates the expert stagecraft of dozens of International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees (IATSE) members and their exceptional design and construction of sets, props, costumes, puppets and technology that brought this magical, award-winning production to life.
Discover the Heart of Hennepin, a yearlong celebration for the Orpheum, State and Pantages theatres, along with The Hennepin event center (900 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis) and 824 Hennepin, home to the Brave New Workshop comedy theatre. The centennial celebration honors the past 100 years of the Hennepin Theatre District and looks ahead to what the future holds for the arts, the Trust and downtown neighbors.
The Trust is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies on charitable contributions from our community.
