Northrop Auditorium Set to Reopen Friday

Friday is the official grand reopening of Northrop Auditorium at the University of Minnesota.

The revitalization project started three years ago. There are fewer seats, but they added three balconies. More of the seats have been moved within 100 feet of the stage.

Part of the project includes the Hubbard Broadcasting rehearsal studio. It’s a multi-purpose space that can be used for pre-performance practice or meetings.

Northrop celebrates its grand reopening Friday with a performance from the American Ballet Theatre.
