About Us

Since 1989, the professional artists of the Commonweal have brought to life soulful stories told with honesty and creativity. Located in the heart of southeast Minnesota’s bluff country, Lanesboro (pop. 750) is home to the company’s theatre in its historic downtown. Our company and our productions have earned state, regional, and international awards.

The heart of the Commonweal’s programming is the mainstage season. This balanced yet challenging repertory is traditionally comprised of five plays with more than 180 performances, chosen from among the world’s finest classic, contemporary, and emerging playwrights. The rotating repertory schedule allows visitors to see more than one production during a weekend stay, with alternating performances running Thursday through Saturday evenings, Sunday matinees, and, in the summer and fall, Saturday matinees and Monday evenings. The company boasts a distinctive organizational model with resident ensemble members (who have come from all over the country to make their home in the Lanesboro area) fulfilling the day-to-day artistic and operational needs of the company as artist/administrators.

Hours usually vary: Spring & summer: T/W-Su 10a - showtime; Summer & fall add M 10-showtime. Call (800) 657-7025
