Dear Friends,

Raven Theatre is committed to doing all that we can to help stop the spread of COVID-19. In order to protect the health and safety of our patrons, artists, staff, and community, we have decided to postpone the world premiere of Mat Smart’s “Eden Prairie, 1971” which was set to begin performances on May 7th.

We look forward to sharing this touching play with you at a later date, to be determined as events related to the virus unfold. Many of you already have tickets to this production and we respectfully request that you wait to make changes to your reservations until we finalize our new performance schedule. At that time, we will reach out to all ticket holders directly with new ticket options.

Artists are usually found at Raven an average of 6 days per week, 12 months per year, working to bring our programs to life. With our gears ground to a halt – and no art to share – donations are the only way we can pay the bills right now. Your donor dollars give us the flexibility to address expenses in the order they arise, which is key to securing the future of your neighborhood theatre. We know this is a challenging financial time for many, but we truly mean it when we say no gift is too small to help keep Raven running.

Make a Donation

If you are unable to spare a donation right now, consider subscribing to our upcoming 2020-2021 season. Or, take a moment to follow us on social media by clicking the icons at the bottom of your browser – it’s a completely free way to stay in the loop and to help us spread the word when we get back on stage.

Theatre brings people together, and we look forward to welcoming all of you back with open arms when we are able to gather again. On behalf of the entire Raven team, thank you for your understanding and generosity as we navigate these tough times together.

Cody Estle
Artistic Director
