2018-2019 Season

Beloved classics and bold new work

Our current season is in full swing and this time of year, we also find ourselves looking towards an exciting future by announcing the fruits of months of artistic planning: our 2018–2019 Season.

Knowing the Guthrie is at its best when we can be many things to many people, we offer a season of time-honored classics and a breadth of brilliant new work. In 2018–2019, it is my hope that we’ll continue to see ourselves as well as our neighbors in the work we present, ask meaningful questions of each other, broaden our perspectives and expand our tastes – all while being thoroughly entertained.

We hope to see you in 2018–2019.
