Welcome to the Playhouse!

Welcome to The Duluth Playhouse, one of the country’s oldest community theatres (we’re over 100 years old, and still performing strong)! We stage and perform exceptional live theatrical entertainment for all theatre-goers, from musicals to comedies to dramas to original works, it’s enjoyed by the very young to the young at heart. All ages and all tastes will enjoy something performed on our three stages: the Depot Main Stage (soon to be at the NorShor Theatre!), the Children’s Theatre, and the Underground Theatre. We offer a full experience with each show. From the moment you walk into the Playhouse, it will be a night of theatre and #playhousemoments to remember!

TICKET UPDATE for ‘A Christmas Carol’
All remaining performances of A Christmas Carol are down to single seat availability or sold-out status. But, do not fret quite yet! Rush Lists will begin each night one hour prior to the performance (6:30pm & 1:00pm). Names will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. There is no guarantee seats will become available, and if they do, how many or where they will be located. Must be present to claim tickets should they become available that night. We are also taking names for Wait Lists during the day should tickets become available during business hours. Good luck! (Updated 12-11-2017)
