It’s a once-in-a-generation moment. The beloved Sheldon, a Minnesota treasure, is renewed. It’s the 30th anniversary of the historic 1988 full renovation and – can you believe it? – the 115th year of programming.
And so, we celebrate! We celebrate renovation and renewal. We celebrate one small town’s enduring commitment to the performing arts. We celebrate the next generation and the next 30 years. We celebrate a truly grand Minnesota theatre filled with great Minnesota artists in a one-of-a-kind Minnesota community.
The final stage of renovation, underway this summer, preserves all of the grandeur, historic charm, and the uniquely warm embrace of our “jewel-box”, while adding contemporary features that set this venerable stage for thirty more years…and beyond.
In a few short months, we’ll be cutting the ribbon to reveal a renewed, refreshed, reinvigorated Sheldon. With the physical work almost complete, now it’s our job to fill this space with life. Because, it’s what happens here, now and for the next generation(s) to come, that truly matters. So, on this special occasion we are asking the entire community to demonstrate your recommitment to the next 30 years (and beyond) of unforgettable performance experiences and cherished new memories at the Sheldon.
Join in our #30More campaign efforts this summer as we build up to the beginning of the 18/19 Grand Reopening Season. On the occasion of a once-in-a-generation renewal, please give $30 more, 30% more, round up to the next 30 – you choose what’s right for you – to help us raise $30,000 as a visible demonstration of our community wide recommitment to #30More years…connections…laughs…insights…friends…memories…and so much more.
