Fans of Pro Rata and Twin Cities theater in general,
We’ve got some exciting news to share with you.
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!
Theatre Pro Rata is pleased to announce auditions for the final production of our 13th season, Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, directed by Carin Bratlie. The play runs the first three weekends in June. Head over to our Auditions Page for details and to schedule an audition slot.
