Pillsbury House + Theatre
Price works with the Pillsbury House + Theatre, a 31-year-old community-based theater in Minneapolis. Price studies how the theater presents itself to different audiences, how it can balance the needs of its community with the goals of its donors, and how it can use past experiences to improve future work.
