Each year History Theatre produces a season filled with excellent plays and musicals while developing new scripts through workshops and staged readings. Since 1977, the company has staged more than 100 world premieres, working with nationally recognized playwrights such as Jeffrey Hatcher, Kevin Kling, Craig Wright, Frank McCourt, Doris Baizley, Melanie Marnich, Kim Hines, John Olive, and Kira Obolensky. From a harrowing slave journey to St. Paul in "Adrift on the Mississippi" to an urban musical celebration of the Twin Cities in "Snapshots: Life in the City," from the rock ’n’ roll biography "Buddy—The Buddy Holly Story" to the dark, complex "A Piece of the Rope" about Minnesota’s first public execution, History Theatre has moved audiences to rediscover, relive, and respect every piece of their history.

  • Intimate theater. All seats are pretty good. Perhaps avoid the balcony near stage front as the lines can be limited. Performances are based on actual Minnesota historical events/persons. The local nature of the productions means the audience is knowledgeable and engaged. Reccomend this experience.
  • I loved it and the staff. Are awesome. Thanks for a great time
