Purchasing Tickets

Tickets can be purchased in person at the State Theatre Box Office (M-F, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.) at 805 Hennepin Ave. in downtown Minneapolis Tickets can also be purchased online through Ticketmaster.com.

Hennepin Arts urges you to buy only from the above authorized ticket vendors for shows at our theaters. This not only ensures the best prices but also the best customer service.

Ticketmaster is the only authorized ticketing agent – in addition to our theater box offices. If you buy from a second party vendor, we cannot guarantee the validity of the ticket and you risk being denied admission, refunds and/or exchanges if it is found to be fraudulent.

Ticketmaster offers authentic fan-to-fan reselling of tickets online through TicketExchange – which will issue a unique barcode linked to Ticketmaster’s ticketing system.

We offer a wide variety of accessibility services, including accessible seating, services for hearing and vision impaired patrons, accessible parking and restrooms. Learn more.

Unless otherwise noted, children under five, including babies in arms, are not allowed in the theatre. Certain family events may make exceptions to this policy; please visit the event page for the show you are interested in for information on show-specific age policies.

Everyone entering the theater must have a ticket, regardless of age, and children must be seated with an adult. Any person disrupting a performance or inhibiting the enjoyment of an event for guests may be removed from the theater without refund.

Attending A Show

Lobbies are open to the public approximately one hour prior to showtime. Theatre seating traditionally begins 30 minutes prior to showtime.

If you are using mobile tickets, please download them to your phone (via Account Manager for subscribers or Ticketmaster for non-subscribers) before going through security. Doing this in advance means you won’t need an internet connection at the theatre. Keep your tickets available until you are seated.

Our staff is committed to creating a safe and pleasant entertainment experience for guests. All patrons are electronically screened using walk-through metal detectors. Bags are searched for prohibited items, so please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes in advance. Prohibited items include oversized bags, backpacks, weapons, selfie sticks, cameras with external flash, audio/video recording devices, outside food and beverages (unless required because of a disability or medical requirement) and more.

Check here for a complete list along with our Guest Code of Conduct. If you arrive with any prohibited item, we will ask you to secure it elsewhere before entering the venue.

Backpacks and large bags (over 14” x 15”), are prohibited from entering the theatre. Small purses and bags that can fit in the limited space under the seat or comfortably in someone’s lap are fine. All bags will be searched. Please review our list of prohibited items.

The Orpheum, State, Pantages and Dudley Riggs Theatres ban guns and other weapons on the premises. Please review our list of Prohibited Items. – link to updated Security and guest code

If you are attending a performance at the Orpheum, State, Pantages and Dudley Riggs Theatres and have a question or concern about your experience, please speak to an usher or a manager right away.

The use of professional photography equipment is strictly prohibited. Small cameras and camera phones are sometimes permitted at the show’s discretion, often determined the day of the show. Look for signage in the lobby for specific camera policies upon arrival.

For the performance, please remember to turn off all cell phones, pagers, watch alarms, or any other device that might make noise. Audience cues can often be taken from the house lights. If the lights are up, talking is permitted, if the lights are down, talking or singing is discouraged.

While our theaters have no specific dress code, we find that many of our patrons like to dress up to celebrate attending a special event.

Except for service dogs or special pet-friendly events, animals are not allowed in the theatre.

Guests arriving after the start of the performance will be seated at the discretion of management, in accordance to the wishes of the performing company. These times vary with each production.

The telephone number for emergency messages is 612-339-7007, ext 450 for the Orpheum, State and Pantages theatres. Emergency messages are delivered immediately during performances when seat locations are known. Persons expecting emergency messages are asked to leave their seat locations in advance with the calling party and with the Box Office upon arrival.

First aid supplies are available at all theaters. Ask any usher for assistance. There is a security officer trained in CPR and first aid on duty at every performance from the time the lobbies open until all guests have exited.

Yes! We have a mother’s room available in each theater upon request. Simply ask one of our staff members and you will be connected with an on-site manager to coordinate access, timing and other logistics. While you can request a mother’s room upon arrival at the theatre, we encourage you to let staff at the Orpheum, State and Pantages theatres know in advance so they can prepare the room and ensure the needs of all patrons are met. These requests can be easily made by contacting our Box Office by phone (612-339-7007) or via email.

A variety of beverages including wine, beer and soft drinks and light snacks are available for purchase in the theatre. No outside food or beverages (including to-go containers) are allowed in the theatre (unless required because of a disability or medical requirement).
