"Every community should have a History Theatre." -- Erin Hart, theater critic, Saint Paul Pioneer Press
History Theatre is looking forward, and it won’t be long before we can gather in the theater together again! Your support helps us prepare for returning to the stage safely. In a normal year, History Theatre relies on a combination of ticket sales and donations to balance our budget, but with pandemic restrictions, we've relied even more on contributed income this year than any other to stay afloat. Your support now helps ensure we can continue to support artists, playwrights, and actors in our community, invest in new work and do it safely.
Founded in 1978, History Theatre is the only theatre dedicated to preserving the history of Minnesota and the Midwest through quality theatrical production. Under the artistic direction of Ron Peluso, our plays illuminate historical events, personalities, and social issues, and enrich the cultural life of our community by bringing nearly one million people to downtown Saint Paul.
