Theatre Mission, Overview and Programming
Park Square opened in 1975 and has grown to become the largest mid-sized theatre in Minnesota. The work on our two stages (350-seat proscenium; 200-seat thrust) attracts this market's third largest subscriber base as well as a school audience of 22,000 teens (representing 1 in every 15 Minnesota 7th-12th grade students).

Powered by new Artistic Director Flordelino Lagundino, Park Square is an important regional hub for artistically innovative and civically engaged artists and audiences. The heart of our vision is a wide range of innovative, audacious, transformation theatre to represent and cross-pollinate a multiplicity of voices.
Park Square plays a leading role as a local producer of new work by living writers including world premiere commissions and important second productions of work in development. We have grown into one of Minnesotas top employers of local stage talent. We have a strong commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. We work with AEA (SPT6-10 and TYA), Stage Directors + Choreographers Society (SDC) and the Twin Cities Musicians Union for traditional musicals.
