The Stage

The Southern Theater's Mission is to foster a community of exceptional artists.

Located at Seven Corners in Minneapolis near the University of Minnesota's West Bank campus, our intimate, 210-seat house serves as a leading and valued venue for eclectic, experimental and engaging work that appeals to diverse audiences.

The Southern Theater opened its doors on March 1, 1910, offering a variety of entertainments. Following years as a garage, warehouse, antique shop, restaurant and vacancy, the Southern resumed its role as a theater when the Guthrie Theater renovated the space for use as a second stage. With the assistance of the Minneapolis Arts Commission, the Southern Theater Foundation emerged in its present, non-profit corporate structure in 1983.

The Southern Theater provides a home for artstis, giving them the freedom to focus on what matters most, their art.

We add new value by fostering a community that serves the artist's need for stability, for a sense of place, for the opportunity to experiment and as a resource to learn and grow.

We offer audiences a unique experience that ignites their imaginations and expands their perspectives in an extraordinary historical theater.
