Minneapolis-St. Paul (May 5, 2015)--The University of Minnesota’s College
of Liberal Arts and the Department of Theatre Arts and Dance announced
today that performances aboard the Minnesota Centennial Showboat are being
suspended for the summer of 2015.
The Mississippi River flood during summer 2014 caused the cancellation of a
significant portion of last year’s performances. The resulting financial
shortfall, combined with deferred maintenance issues on the boat and the
razor-thin budgets common to most theaters, led to the decision to cancel
By pausing this year to explore financial restructuring and new potential
for programing partnerships, the University plans to come to a viable
solution for the future of the Minnesota Centennial Showboat.
