The Hennepin Theatre Trust is a non-profit organization in Minneapolis dedicated to the cultural development of the community through the arts. The mission is to present a mixture of live performances and educational experiences. Located in downtown Minneapolis, the Theatre Trust hosts activities from Broadway touring productions to comedy, speakers, concerts and more.

When you purchase your ticket for a performance held here, a portion of the ticket goes to the operations behind the scenes and the work of programs benefitting students and the community. Here is a look at the types of shows you can experience with the Hennepin Theatre Trust.

About Hennepin

The theatre trust works with a variety of theatres in the city. The historic State, Orpheum and Pantages Theatres are unique to the city and are some of the finest in the Midwest. The Trust’s mission is to preserve, maintain and improve these 100-year-old venues to make sure they are running smoothly. You can enjoy everything from Broadway shows to a live concert at these theatres.
