Hennepin Theatre Trust announces Cats will not appear in the 2021-2022 Broadway season

June 2, 2021

MINNEAPOLIS (June 2, 2021) — Hennepin Theatre Trust announced today that due to the continued effects of COVID on the touring Broadway industry, the Broadway musical Cats will no longer be part of the upcoming season.  The Trust is working with the producers to secure a new date in a forthcoming season. Tickets were only available for purchase as an add-on to season subscription packages and were not yet on sale to the general public. Season subscribers with tickets to Cats will be automatically credited for use toward a future event. They will also be contacted with an explanation of additional options which include donating the value of their tickets or receiving a refund. Cats was originally scheduled to run Jan. 25-30, 2022.

Disney’s Frozen will kick off the 2021-2022 Bank of America Broadway on Hennepin season this October. Tickets are on sale now at HennepinTheatreTrust.org.

 Organizers at Hennepin Theatre Trust have been tirelessly working on a reopening plan in accordance with public health guidelines. As the Trust has previously stated, relaunching tours requires months of production work and local compliance coordination to welcome back audiences safely and responsibly. As restrictions are lessening, the Trust continues to work with touring shows to best coordinate show schedules and venue availability.

If there are additional changes to the Broadway season, ticket holders will be updated through their point of purchase and on the Trust’s website. The Trust assures ticket holders the value of their ticket is safe in the event of any changes. Ticket holders will have the option of a credit, refund or the ability to donate the value of their tickets to Hennepin Theatre Trust. Individual show ticket sales will be announced at later dates.

All pricing, ordering and scheduling information is available at HennepinTheatreTrust.org/Broadway.

Hennepin Theatre Trust is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution and relies on both ticket sales and contributed revenue for all operational needs related to its community mission. 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.

The Trust reminds patrons to only purchase tickets through the Trust’s website to ensure tickets to shows at the Orpheum, State or Pantages Theatres. Those who have purchased through a secondary ticketing site should contact their point of purchase for more information regarding how their order is affected. The Trust is not responsible for the procedures or refund policies of secondary ticket providers or other sources. 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.
