You’ll love the Historic Sheldon Theatre from the moment you enter!
Built in 1904, the Sheldon Theatre was a stop for acts traveling from Chicago to the Twin Cities. In 1988, after two major fires and spending nearly 80 years as a first-class movie house, it was restored to a performing arts theater and elegantly updated in 2018. Our mission to entertain, educate and enlighten brings tremendous variety to the Sheldon stage each season. We combine small-town hospitality and world-class artists for unforgettable experiences. From live music to theatre, dance and comedy, you’re sure to find the show for you.
Just in town for the day? We invite you to stop by for a self-guided tour and see the original 1904 French tiled mosaic floors, Italian marble columns, and Austrian crystal chandeliers. This “jewel box” theater was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Come experience the history or be a part of it and attend a show. Call for last minute ticket availability!
Located in the heart of Red Wing, we welcome about 30,000 people to dozens of events each year. We’d love to welcome you!
