Theatre 55 was created in 2018 to fill a need in the Twin Cities and throughout Minnesota: theatre performed artists of a certain age. The community of elders who will be performing will have not only been a part of this pivotal time in the past but are reliving it today. Some would say that strides made during the past 50 years are in jeopardy today. And those same people can find voice through the theatre to speak up and speak out.
The theatre was formed with the purpose of developing lifelong learning through theatre performance and education.
Our vision is to enrich the lives of elders as artists, audiences, and lifelong learners through theatre performance and education.
