The Jungle Theater creates courageous, resonant theater that challenges, entertains, and sparks expansive conversation. As a neighborhood theater with national impact, the Jungle focuses on telling stories that matter, with deep care and attention to detail. The Jungle is deeply rooted in its Lyn Lake neighborhood in Minneapolis and plays a vital role in the economic and cultural development of the area. The Jungle was founded in 1991 by Bain Boehlke and counts among its credits a dozen Ivey Awards and numerous top production awards from critics.

Who We Are -


One of the Jungle’s key values is caring for our people. That includes our artists, our audiences, and our staff. Making and sharing theater requires close physical proximity, so we are committed to making healthy choices, especially in these uncertain times of Covid-19.

As restrictions lighten across the Twin Cities, the Jungle still strives to care for our people. As of October 1, 2022, the Jungle Theater strongly recommends and encourages that audiences wear a mask in the theater and lobby spaces. Masks and proof of vaccination or a negative test are no longer required to attend any Jungle performance.

Recent survey data suggests that 99.5% of Jungle Audience members during our 21-22 season were fully vaccinated. Our staff and artists are required to be fully vaccinated, and the cast regularly tests for COVID-19.

We ask that if you feel sick, please stay home, even if you have tested negative for COVID-19. We are happy to waive exchange fees for anyone who is feeling unwell to best protect our audience and team from illness. We will continue to review these protocols regularly. Up-to-date information will be shared on jungletheater.org/covid19-information.
