Spotlight Education

With the temporary closing of schools across Minnesota, Spotlight Education will not be sending any evaluators to schools to assess musical theater programs until further notice. We are working with each of our schools to ascertain their plans as they navigate this situation. If you are a student or parent with questions, please reach out to your school for updates. Follow Spotlight Education social channels for virtual opportunities we are working on.

We also regret to inform you that Spotlight Showcase 2020 is canceled. The event scheduled for June 8 and 9 at the State Theatre in the Hennepin Theatre District, and the accompanying pre-production and rehearsal period spanning from May 2 to June 9 is also canceled.

Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. If you are able to do so, consider donating your ticket back to Hennepin Theatre Trust to support these activities in your community.

Partner Offers

We encourage you to show your support for our partners during the mandatory closings. Several restaurants are offering take out and/or delivery options, and most are selling gift cards for use at a later date. The partner offers page includes a complete list of available services and links to operations announcements.

Commitment to safety

Our highest priority is the health and wellness of all visitors to our venues. We are committed to providing a clean environment with increased precautions in all public and private spaces:

  • Extensive cleaning and increased frequency of disinfecting procedures for all high-touch areas in the front of house and back of house areas of the theater, including sanitizing armrests, seatbacks, handrails, door handles, countertops, sinks, faucets, bathroom doors, and other frequently touched surfaces
  • Ensuring all employees are trained in vigilant personal washing and cleaning protocols
  • Ensuring anti-bacterial soaps are provided in all restrooms
  • Monitoring the health of our staff and enforcing those with the slightest of symptoms to stay home and not come to work

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
