About us

Pro Rata is a small professional theater company in Minneapolis, MN. We're interested in how we do theater, not what kind of theater it is (that's why we do edgy black comedies as well as Shakespeare). We believe the creative process is important, and if the process is meaningful, the end product will be meaningful as well. The term Pro Rata is Latin for "in proportion." It is commonly used to refer to the distribution of shares or liabilities by an exactly calculable factor. We chose the name to reflect the collaborative nature of our theater -- meaning that we succeed in proportion to the communal efforts of a group of committed artists. We want you to love the play as much as we do.
