Hennepin Theatre Trust scheduling and safety update

Scheduling and safety update

Our highest priority is the health and wellness of all visitors to our venues. We are preparing to welcome you back responsibly with a seamless, improved guest experience. We are collaborating with state and local officials on new safety protocols at our theatres following public health guidelines to allow us to reopen at full capacity. Here’s what you can expect when you return:

Mandatory Face Coverings

  • Masks will be mandatory for everyone in the venue during the entire duration of their visit to better protect visitors, staff, vendors, crew and casts.
Contactless Entry and Ticketing

  • Your phone will be your ticket to get in, and we encourage you to use a debit or credit card at the box office when buying tickets.
  • We will have upgraded ticket scanning stations to limit contact between patrons and staff
  • Mobile food and beverage ordering will be available
Hand Sanitizing Stations

  • Hand sanitizing stations will be installed throughout the venue
  • Anti-bacterial soap will be provided in all restrooms
Enhanced Cleaning

  • Extensive cleaning and increased frequency of disinfecting procedures for all high-touch areas in the theatre
  • Touchless faucets and toilets have been installed
  • Ensuring all employees are trained in vigilant hand washing techniques and cleaning protocols
Staff Health Checks

  • We are continuing to monitor the health of our staff and enforce those with the slightest of symptoms to not come to work.
HVAC Systems

  • Our air handling systems are operating to full design capabilities to maximize the number of air exchanges per hour, and we have enhanced the filtration.

Hennepin Theatre Trust acknowledges that personal safety is also a concern among many visitors. We are committed to making sure that safety issues and concerns remain a priority as we look to reopen our theatre doors in September. The Trust will be employing on-site security services in our historic theatres and The Hennepin to connect to emergency services when needed and provide our guests with a safe experience.

We are also engaging with our patrons, donors, and community and civic leaders to listen to their comments, share information and advise on effective solutions to the challenges endured during the past year. We are also working closely with Downtown Council, DID Ambassadors, community organizations such as MAD DADS YouthLink and the City of Minneapolis Office of Violence Prevention, the hospitality industry and business leaders to better inform and implement our safety measures.

Downtown is open and is already welcoming visitors with the return of sporting events, restaurants, live music and gatherings. You can keep track of all the up-to-date information at www.mplsdowntown.com/reanimation.

We will continue to share plans about our reopening schedule and safety protocols. If you have accessibility questions or require any additional assistance related to the venue’s COVID-19 policies, please email us at Accessible@BroadwayAcrossAmerica.com or leave a message at 612.339.7007. For general questions, please contact us.
