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, 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!


Our Children’s Theatre production of Disney’s The Lion King JR! is currently sold out for all remaining performances. If you still wish to try and see the show, call our Box Office at 218.733.7555 to put your name on a wait list, or you may try rushing a show.

Rushing a show means coming one-hour prior to the performance start time, putting your name down on our Rush List (on a first-come-first-serve basis). If tickets become available due to no-shows or last-minute cancellations, we will start selling available tickets right before the performance beings. Please note when rushing a show, there is no guarantee of seats becoming available. If seats do become available, there is also no guarantee of how many will become available or where they will be located. (Updated March 20 @ 10:00am)
