Theatre Pro Rata is thrilled to announce the productions for its upcoming 2015-16 season. This mix of modern and timeless classics will feature A Lie of the Mind by Sam Shepard, the Tony Award-winning The Beauty Queen of Leenane by Martin McDonagh, and The Knight of the Burning Pestle by Francis Beaumont, a rollicking satire of the theater (and its audience members) from the Jacobean era.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Spring Swing! We had a wonderful time getting to know you and just relaxing and enjoying a fun social event with our patrons. We look forward to doing it again next year!
We love Theatre Pro Rata in the springtime because that means its time for our annual Spring Swing fundraiser! It’s our fourth annual event, and this time we celebrate the magic and fun of our summer production: The Illusion.
While this event will help us raise money to keep doing our smart, vivid, varied, and gutsy programming, it is more about spending time with people we admire: our supporters and fans. So come spend an evening with us!
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.
