Orpheum Theatre, Minneapolis

The Orpheum Theatre was originally known as the Hennepin. It has been hosting performances since 1921. It is part of the Hennepin Theatre Trust.

Orpheum Theatre's Child Policy

Unless otherwise noted, children 5 and under are not allowed at Orpheum performances. Many of their shows are not appropriate for children, but parents can be the judge with kids aged 6 and up. Hennepin Theater Trust suggests using the article How to Pick an Age-Appropriate Broadway Show for Your Kid for deciding age appropriateness of individual shows. I've used it for most of the age recommendations below. Everyone, regardless of age, is required to have a ticket to enter the theater.

2020-2021 Broadway on Hennepin Season

The most family-friendly shows of the 2020-2021 season are:

  • Oklahoma! (Recommended for ages 12+). The 12+ rating is probably for those violent parts with Jud the farmhand. I know I saw it younger than 12. You be the judge.
  • To Kill A Mockingbird (Recommended for ages 12+). Your kids might have to read the book in high school. Give them a head start with the musical.
  • Hamilton (Recommended for ages 10+). A history lesson in musical form. Even people who don't love musicals love Hamilton.
  • Cats (Recommended for ages 6+). This is always a fun family musical as its a great way to learn the poems by T.S. Eliot that the songs are based on.

The Orpheum is part of the Hennepin Theatre Trust
