Hennepin Theatre Trust works with Twin Cities non-profit educational, cultural and social service providers through our Access program to offer tickets and engagement opportunities to members of the community traditionally underserved by our theatres. Through Access, these individuals can experience the best of Broadway, music, lectures and dance, Family Day events or workshops with one of our teaching artists. Hennepin Theatre Trust’s Access raises awareness of the cultural options in the Twin Cities.

If you have tickets for an event at one of our theatres and cannot attend, please consider donating your tickets to the Trust’s Access. Simply contact the Donor Ticket Line at 612.455.9536. Your donation is 100% tax deductible for the full face value of the tickets. You will receive a letter from us to use for your tax deductible purposes.

If your organization is interested in becoming an Access participant, please contact the Education Program Coordinator at

Applications for the 2016-2017 season are now closed. Check back in September 2017 about applying for the 2017-2018 season.

“Thank you for all of the tickets we have received over the years. I consider myself very fortunate to be involved with this wonderful and rewarding program and I am most appreciative of the sponsors who continue to support this worthwhile and important program. They are providing the opportunity for many people who otherwise would not have the means to attend the performances of the many fine shows that come through the Twin Cities.”
