Join us in transporting and transforming our next generation.


  • For more than 25 years, the Guthrie has provided free or deeply reduced tickets to schools throughout Minnesota. 
  • Now in our third year of partnership with Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS), we will proudly welcome all ninth-graders from eight public high schools to see Shakespeare’s King Lear
  • This season, we will expand our reach to Saint Paul Public Schools. 
  • Due to the generosity of Guthrie donors, all matinee tickets and busing are provided at no cost to the students or schools. 
  • Guthrie Resident Teaching Artists will spend more than 2,000 hours in Minneapolis and Saint Paul public high school classrooms this season.
  • A gift of any amount supports this growing program, and just $6 pays for bus transportation for one Twin Cities student.
