The Guthrie is a national center for theater arts and theater education.

Thank you for your generous support!

Each year, 420,000 people from all corners of the state are inspired by the Guthrie's world-class productions and comprehensive education programs. Your donation is crucial in order for the Guthrie to continue serving all Minnesotans, regardless of age, income or ability.

From the opening of the Guthrie with Hamlet in 1963, to the tradition of A Christmas Carol, to presenting new and provocative works, the Guthrie has enjoyed a legacy of excellence. Committed audiences have helped drive our vision for tomorrow by supporting our education programs and actor training initiatives. Together, we are fostering the next generation of theater lovers.

By giving to the Guthrie, you not only support world-class theater and theater education programs, but you also help support Minnesota artists who delight, challenge and inspire our community.

Though the scope of our work is international, the Guthrie Theater is ultimately rooted in Minnesota and is proud to provide unique opportunities for hundreds of local artists each year. Your gift today, will keep the Guthrie and Minnesota artists at the forefront of the theater.

We are tremendously grateful for your support, today and for the next 50 years.
