Production History

Park Square Theatre has been producing in the 350-seat proscenium auditorium of the Historic Hamm Building since 1997. Our first theatrical home was at the Park Square Court Building – first in an 88-seat walkup (1974-1980), then in a 135-seat thrust stage in the basement (1981-1985). After being unceremoniously evicted, we held performances at Landmark Center and Hamline University before renovating the 120-seat Jemne Auditorium in the former Minnesota Museum of Art building (1986-1995).

With the addition of the Andy Boss Thrust Stage to our Historic Hamm Building facility in 2015, we returned to our intimate, thrust stage roots while embedding ourselves in the newest generation of theatre makers and theatre goers with a broad range of plays and producing partners.
