Board Opportunities

Yellow Tree Theatre

Yellow Tree Theatre (YTT or Yellow Tree) was founded in 2008 in response to a need for the arts in the Northwest Suburbs of Minneapolis.  Yellow Tree was born with the goal of creating a welcoming artistic venue, with live theater as its backbone, which would also serve as a vibrant artistic hub for the community.  Also, our artists are hugely important to us, and we seek to cultivate a theater company where artists are creatively challenged, artistically inspired and financially supported.

YTT has produced ten world premieres and served thousands of loyal patrons. YTT was awarded a 2016 National Theater Company Grant from the American Theater Wing and is generously supported by the McKnight Foundation and the Minnesota State Arts Board.

In the theater’s ongoing effort to increase the diversity of its operations, people of color, women and LGBTQ individuals are especially encouraged to apply.
