A “Blast From the Past” Gala Event!

This summer, Theatre Pro Rata celebrates Shakespeare’s 450th birthday with a rockin’ and rollin’ 1950s production of Twelfth Night! In that spirit, help us kick off the summer at our 3rd annual Gala on Sunday, May 18, 4-7 pm at the 508 Bar and Restaurant in downtown Minneapolis.

Our Gala is not just an excuse to raise money (though that is, of course, a goal). While we love to see you in our audience, we get little or no time to get to know you. The Gala gives us an opportunity to know each other in an atmosphere that is a little more personal and relaxed. [click for more information...]

Pro Rata’s 2014-15 Season

We are thrilled to announce the lineup for our 2014-2015 season! Pro Rata’s 14th season will feature an adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984, The Woodsman by Steven Fechter, and The Illusion by Tony Kushner.

The season contains adaptations from literature and classical theater as well as a play that was itself adapted into a successful film (2004′s The Woodsman, starring Kevin Bacon).

Fans of Pro Rata and Twin Cities theater in general,

We’ve got some exciting news to share with you.

  • In Spring 2015, Park Square Theatre will be opening a new theater space in their building.
  • They’ve asked us to be one of their Producing Partners (Sandbox Theatre and Girl Friday Productions too).
  • What does this mean? For the next three years, one of our productions each season will be held in the brand new Andy Boss Thrust Stage at Park Square! Construction will begin soon and from the preliminary looks we’ve gotten at the design, we think you’ll be impressed.

In honor of Elephant’s Graveyard, Theatre Pro Rata made a symbolic adoption of a pygmy elephant through World Wildlife Fund.

This donation went towards protecting natural environments and endangered species and to help local communities build sustainable livelihoods.

As a thank you from the Fund, we received an adorable plushie and a gift bag, which we will be raffling off on Opening Night along with a signed copy of the script!
