Critical-View-ewebHennepin Theatre Trust connects the Twin Cities’ community through educational and community engagement initiatives that enrich our lives and encourage artists and audiences for the future. The Trust’s multi-faceted programs include Spotlight Education which honors students who excel in high school musical theatre, Critical Review which teaches students arts criticism and the Access Program which opens the doors of our historic theatres to a wider range of people.
