We announced our 2016-2017 seasons for the Depot main stage, the Underground, Children's Theatre and Theater for Young Audiences (TYA) today! Missed it? Catch up on our blog, and get excited for great shows coming your way.




DATES: May 4 - 8, 2016

Wed-Sat @ 7:30pm | Sat & Sun @ 2pm

Peggy Sawyer arrives in New York City from Allenstown, PA with her tap shoes and big dreams of becoming a Broadway star. Facing adversity from all directions, the young but talented performer learns about show business and discovers which relationships are most important in life.

42nd Street is a big, bold musical set in the 1930s filled with crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre show tunes, and show-stopping ensemble production numbers...all celebrating the stuff dreams are made of!

TICKETS: Adults: $30 | Youth/Students - $25 | Groups (15+) - $25


Presenting Sponsors Duluth News Tribune and US Bank of Duluth.





DATES: May 14-29, 2016

Sat @ 1pm & 4pm| Sun @ 2pm

Performed by the Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) ensemble in The Underground.

A world premiere original script following the adventures of Chico Bon Bon, Bug on a Bike, Sneaky Sheep, and other beloved characters created by Duluth author Chris Monroe.

The beloved illustrations come to life, and just wait until to see what kinds of trouble we can get into with this interactive literacy adaptation of Chris Monroe's classic picture books performed by the Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) ensemble. It'll be fun for the whole family!


TICKETS: Adults: $14 | Youth/Students - $12 | Groups (15+) - $10


Special thank you to the Historical Depot Foundation!


Donate to the Playhouse!

As we continue Hittin' The Stage in our 2015-16 season, we ask that you please consider a gift to the Playhouse this holiday season. Your generosity will directly benefit the quality of experiences at the Playhouse, Children's Theatre and The Underground.

Last season was truly spectacular, and each time you return to the Playhouse, we will only continue to be better and better with each show. None of this would be possible without constant support from our community and patrons like you. We hope you'll donate (all you have to do is click the button below!). Thank you so much, and best wishes to you and yours this holiday season!
