MINNEAPOLIS (Jan. 14, 2021) — With hopeful news of COVID-19 vaccines, the touring Broadway industry is planning for a safe return to the theater later this year. Hennepin Theatre Trust has been collaborating with Broadway producers to relaunch shows and reroute touring schedules throughout North America. The Trust is happy to announce that 11 of the 12 previously announced shows, along with a new title, have been scheduled beginning in late summer of this year as the 2021-2022 Bank of America Broadway on Hennepin season.

The health and well-being of our audiences, casts, crew and staff remains a top priority. The Trust is actively working in collaboration with state and local government officials to re-open following local, state and federal health guidelines.
While there may be additional changes to the Broadway season, season ticket holders will be updated through their point of purchase and on the Trust’s website. The Trust assures ticket holders that if we need to cancel any performance, the value of their ticket is safe. Ticket holders will have the option of a credit, refund or the ability to donate the value of their tickets to Hennepin Theatre Trust.

Annually, the Trust serves more than 8,000 high school students statewide and brings nearly 600,000 people to the Hennepin Theatre District to experience art on the street and stage.
Please note that the Trust can only provide service options for tickets purchased directly from the Orpheum, State or Pantages box offices, Ticketmaster or Broadway Across America. The Trust is not responsible for the procedures or refund policies of secondary ticket providers or other sources. Guests who purchased through a secondary ticketing site should contact their point of purchase for more information regarding how their order is affected. During this time, the box office is operating at a reduced staffing capacity and facilitating ticketing requests will take additional time due to the volume of events affected.
