About TRP

One of the oldest theatres in the state, Theatre in the Round Players, Inc. (TRP) has established a national reputation and has received numerous awards for artistic and managerial excellence.

Its unique arena was described in the Los Angeles Times as a model which “should be studied by everyone considering doing the same, so well does it master the pluses and minuses of the tricky in-the-round form…”

TRP’s year-round schedule of mainstage productions is produced by professional artistic directors and more than 300 volunteer artists, designers, and technicians, supported by 80+ volunteers behind the scenes — box office staff, house managers, committee and Board members.

Coming up on its 70th season, TRP continues to provide quality theatre for thousands of audience members, as well as opportunities and resources for artists and performing groups throughout the region.


Theatre in the Round was featured on Minnesota Original,
the weekly art series of Twin Cities Public Television (TPT).
