We’re quite pleased to share that two separate publications have listed 1984 and its performers as part of the best of the Twin Cities theater in 2014!
First off there was Lavender Magazine listing company member Grant Henderson as Best Dramatic Actor and Brian Columbus as Best Supporting Dramatic Actor, both for their work in 1984. In addition, City Pages includes 1984 as part of the Best Theater of 2014. Kudos to Grant, Brian, and the entire cast and crew of 1984!

A huge thank you to everyone who donated to Pro Rata on Give to the Max Day this year. We exceeded our fundraising goal and received the full matching grant we had been offered thanks to all of you. Your generosity makes the work we do possible and that means the world to us. And if you didn’t have a chance to give on Thursday there’s good news: You can still donate to Pro Rata at any time by going to our donation page! In the mean time, here’s a quick video thank you note to all of our supporters.
Thursday November 13 is Give to the Max Day.
This state-wide philanthropic day of giving is a wonderful day not only for our fellow non-profits, but especially for Theatre Pro Rata!
This year we have a generous matching gift of $4,000… and you can help us reach our goal and double your dollars!
Pro Rata produces quality theater on a shoe-string budget, and ticket sales only cover 40% of our annual expenses. Your gift on November 13 will make an enormous difference. You can even go to the GiveMN.org website now to schedule your donation for the 13th if you’d like!
Audiences talk about our productions long after the lights go down. Artists come for the first time or again and again to create theater with us. And you can be part of it, too! With your help this company, looking at our 15th Anniversary season next year, will be around for years after that. Thank you for your contribution and your support of independent theater!
One final thank you to our wonderful sponsors who made our production of Twelfth Night possible. Because of their incredible generosity, we were able to present this production free of charge. So thank you to the following organizations who helped to make theater in the Twin Cities more accessible to everyone this summer:
Lowry Hill Neighborhood Association
Kenwood Isles Area Association
Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board
Friends of Loring Park
Citizens for a Loring Park Community
