Vaccine policy and safety protocols in our theatres
Please continue to check this page for the most up-to-date safety protocols.
Policy updates effective April 18, 2022
Given the improvement in COVID-19 positivity rates and cases in our community, beginning on April 18, our theatres will no longer require proof of vaccination or negative COVID test results to attend performances at the historic Orpheum, State and Pantages theatres, The Hennepin and 824 Hennepin. Masks will also no longer be required but are welcomed and encouraged.
These changes will take effect at the historic Orpheum, State and Pantages theatres, The Hennepin and 824 Hennepin on April 18, 2022, barring a change in the current environment or risk category. We will continue to evaluate the latest guidance from the CDC, MDH, and its medical advisors and adjust health and safety protocols accordingly.
Please note that certain shows and events may have specific health and safety requirements. Check the event page for the most current information. We will only list policies on the event page if they are different from the protocols identified above.

Hennepin Theatre Trust acknowledges that personal safety is also a concern among many visitors. 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.
