Hennepin Theatre Trust
Hennepin Theatre Trust drives cultural and economic vitality in Minnesota through leadership of the dynamic Hennepin Theatre District in downtown Minneapolis and educational programming that reaches every area of the state. Its historic theatres — Orpheum, State and Pantages — light up Hennepin Avenue with top-tier entertainment, including the best of Broadway. The beautifully renovated building at 900 Hennepin expands the Trust’s capacity for diverse performances and events, and the organization’s transformation of the places and spaces outside the theatres create a vibrant, welcoming place for all. Annually, the Trust serves thousands of high school students statewide and brings hundreds of thousands of people to the Theatre District to experience art on the street and stage.
