Pillsbury House Theatre COVID-19 Updates

These are unusual times that we find ourselves in. Pillsbury House Theatre’s priority is the health of our employees, patrons and artists. We want everyone that comes in contact with us to remain safe and healthy. As we ride this ever changing storm of the coronavirus pandemic, we wanted to let you know of some of the difficult but necessary decisions we have made that will impact programming.

Beginning Wednesday, March 18th, excluding Pillsbury Early Education Center, Pillsbury House Theatre will be closed , and our staff will work remotely. We will remain closed through Sunday, April 12th, hoping to resume normal business hours on Monday, April 13th. We understand this is an inconvenience for many, and we are truly sorry.

Nina Simone: Four Women

The Minnesota Department of Health has recommended canceling or postponing all events larger than 50 people until further notice. In accordance with this and with the health of our employees, patrons and artists in mind, we have made the decision to postpone our production of Nina Simone: Four Women until later this summer.

Right now, we’re aiming for a start date in late June. We will update you as soon as we know exact dates. Once we have the new dates confirmed, ticket-holders will have the option to move their tickets forward to the date of their choice.

In the meantime, we’re offering refunds to anyone who would like one.

If you would like your tickets refunded, please email Marketing & Communications Manager Rachel Fettig at rachelf@pillsburyhousetheatre.org . Make sure to include the name on the tickets and the date they’re for.

We thank you for your understanding as we continue to navigate this complex situation with the safety of our employees, patrons and artists as our highest priority.

Further updates coming soon.
