Who We Are


PlaceBase Productions works with local communities and commissioning partners to create unforgettable site-specific theater around Minnesota. We aim to mobilize people who see the potential power of theatre to achieve community goals. Our work begins with the history and stories of a significant place. From this place we develop an original script to tell those stories. Using this script we collaborate with the community to make a play.  

Audiences are invited to rediscover the beauty and power of a place they may have known their entire life. 

_MG_0869Our greater goal is to foster creativity, a sense of wonder and, above all, a sense of place by engaging local communities in their unique history and culture and promoting a deeper appreciation for the essential role of the arts in community life.
