The Fitzgerald Theater

The Fitzgerald Theater is committed to programming that reflects the audience and mission of Minnesota Public Radio®.

For live events, Minnesota Public Radio’s 1,058-seat Fitzgerald Theater provides a venue for live remote broadcasts, discussion forums, political debates, cultural programming and more. Originally constructed as a vaudeville theater, the Fitzgerald celebrated its 100th birthday in 2010.

The Fitzgerald Theater is MPR’s largest broadcast studio, with airwaves reaching millions of people tuned in to A Prairie Home Companion®. The Fitz’s staged productions commission authors, artists and radio hosts to create intellectually stimulating programs that delight and enlighten the vast public radio community.

For live events in a more intimate setting, the 100-seat UBS Forum within MPR’s headquarters is a state-of-the-art performance space and broadcast studio.

The mission of Minnesota Public Radio is to enrich the mind and nourish the spirit, thereby assisting our audiences to enhance their lives, expand perspectives and strengthen their communities.
