Park Square Theatre seeks to enrich our community by producing and presenting exceptional live theatre that touches the heart, engages the mind, and delights the spirit.
Your Park Square Theatre Experience
Park Square opened in 1975 in an 80-seat walk-up in the Park Square Court building. With our move to the Historic Hamm Building in 1997, we began our strong relationship with Actors’ Equity Association (the union of professional actors and stage managers), and embraced a leading role as a producer of contemporary plays.
Since then, we’ve grown into Saint Paul’s top employer of local stage talent. Our education program engages one of Minnesota’s two largest teen theatre audiences.
We’re a vigorous company with the ambition and chutzpah to be your theatre of choice. We want to make Park Square “theatre for (more of) you” by consistently deepening our community relationships and empowering diverse artists.
Our artistic leadership has already expanded with the addition of four new Artistic Associates: Brian Balcom, Aditi Kapil, Carson Kreitzer and James A. Williams.
To make room for the feast of theatre experiences this team is bringing you, we are building an additional stage. The Andy Boss Thrust Stage will put you in the intimate embrace of 200 seats wrapped around this town’s top talent. Whether your taste is for “Broadway,” “Off-Broadway” (or “Off-off-off-Broadway”), you’ll find it here.
Park Square’s two stages will also host twice as many school offerings, providing the capacity to inspire as many as 40,000 eager young minds every year.
Consider this your invitation to join us and to let us know what we can add to the artistic menu that will speak to your heart, mind and spirit.
