read our 2020-21 Year in Review

In 2020-21, Hennepin Theatre Trust:

  • Livestreamed 100+ programs
  • Engaged nearly 200 Minnesota artists
  • Worked with 8,000k+ students
  • Partnered with more than 30 community organizations
  • Created $120M economic impact for local businesses
  • Reached 63 Minnesota legislative districts with arts programming

At the height of the pandemic, the Trust and the arts community proved the adage “the show must go on.” While ghost lights were lit on each of our historic theatre stages, we moved performances to fans at home, outdoors, and in digital spaces. We worked to create cultural impact with community and artistic partners. Our programs are a testament to the resiliency, irrepressible spirit and unrelenting desire to make our community better and more equitable.
