A photo collage of Hennepin Theatre Trust events


Here are a few accomplishments Hennepin Theatre Trust achieved in 2021-2022!

  • 63 Minnesota legislative districts reached through programming
  • 30 community organization partnerships across the region
  • Nearly 200 Minnesota artist collaborations
  • Nearly 100 school theater programs serving 8,000 students and thousands of audience members across Minnesota

To honor the District’s past 100 years, we celebrated the “Heart of Hennepin,” a yearlong celebration of our historic venues – the Orpheum, State and Pantages theatres, The Hennepin event center and 824 Hennepin. Adding to the celebration, we were honored to play a role in the continued legacy of the remarkable Dudley Riggs Theatre, home of the Brave New Workshop comedy theatre. Thanks to the tremendous support of our donors, sponsors, partners and Broadway enthusiasts, we achieved these milestones and many more.
