Watch Spectacular Performances at the Theaters in Minneapolis, Minnesota
Catch live talent at the many theaters and art centers that the Twin Cities have to offer.
Venture out to the Ames Center for an impressive symphony orchestra, a dramatic theatrical event, or a sensational ballet spectacle. Whether you’re seated in the middle or high up, each seat is guaranteed an amazing view of the stage. See for yourself how the grounds are; a two-story glass foyer looking over a sweeping view of Nicollet Commons Park, the Minnesota River Valley, and the Minneapolis Skyline. Take in the art gallery that offers rotating exhibits while you’re there.
The art and theatre fans out there have to make the Guthrie Theater part of their trip. Home to theater performances, productions, education, and as a training center for theatrical and performance art, the acclaimed theater; which began with a small staff of six and quickly grew to 500 employees; has an iconic status in the region.
Formerly Burnsville Performing Arts Center, the Ames Center is located in Burnsville near the Nicollet Commons Park and Minnesota River Valley – all within the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
The Ames Center is comprised of two separate theaters – a 1,014-seat proscenium stage and the 150-seat Black Box Theatre. This Burnsville performing arts center also feature meeting rooms, a rehearsal room, a reception and banquet space, and a 2,000-square-foot art gallery.
Established by Tyrone Guthrie, the Guthrie Theater has been one of the landmark theaters in the Twin Cities region, since it opened in 1963. Well-known actors, including Jessica Tandy and Joan van Ark, performed in the early theater productions, helping the theater to maintain its status as a Minnesota cultural staple for years to come.
In 2006, a new, impressive theater building was completed in downtown Minneapolis, along the Mississippi River to help bring the Guthrie into modern day. The new building houses the signature Wurtele Thrust Stage, the McGuire Proscenium Stage, the Dowling Studio, and other landmarks, available for viewing by guided tour.
