Upcoming

Like theatres nationwide, Park Square has been deeply affected by the spread of COVID-19 and is having to make changes to the season previously announced. The good news is, Park Square fully intends to eventually present all of the plays that have been announced, the looming question is “when.”

Your safety is vital. Your Park Square team is taking steps to increase and implement safety precautions throughout the theatre, to ensure that when we do re-open our doors, we will create an experience as safe and risk-free as possible. We are monitoring the spread of cases, and moving in tandem with other Twin Cities arts organizations to work with the Governor’s office on the best time to reopen.

As time progresses, we will continue to reshape the season calendar as needed in advance of each scheduled production, staying flexible for 2021 and beyond. We ask for your patience and understanding, as we navigate these waters together. The dates listed below reflect the current best information about when plays will be taking place, but in these uncertain times, all plays and dates may be subject to change.

Even while remaining physically distant, Park Square is developing an exciting series of virtual offerings to provide entertainment and dialogue during these pandemic times. Sharing stories and celebrating our common humanity is more important now than ever and new online shows will be listed here as soon as they are announced. We hope you’ll join us!
