The Hennepin Theater District was the second largest Vaudeville circuit in the country during the first half of the 20th century. An exhibition of historic photos at the Dudley Riggs Theatre celebrates the 100 year anniversary of the Hennepin Theatre District and the actors, dancers, singers, acrobats, magicians and comedians who contributed to this exciting era of Hennepin Avenue’s history.
