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.
