Park Square opened in 1975 in an 80-seat walk-up in the Park Square Court building. With our move to the Historic Hamm Building in 1997, we began our strong relationship with Actors’ Equity Association (the union of professional actors and stage managers), and embraced a leading role as a producer of contemporary plays.
Since then, we’ve grown into one of Minnesota’s top employers of local stage talent – 64% of whom are women and artists of color. Our education program engages one of the nation’s largest teen theatre audiences.
We’re a vigorous company with the ambition and chutzpah to be your theatre of choice. Together with Artistic Director Richard Cook, our team of Artistic Associates – Aditi Kapil, Carson Kreitzer, Ricardo Vázquez and James A. Williams – bring you fresh titles and perspectives. They continually open up their heads as to what a Park Square play can and should be.
