“After devoting years and years to the Duluth Playhouse, one would assume I’d pursue a career in performing. Instead, I decided to become a nurse. Even though I’ve prepared myself in this profession through countless college courses and volunteering sessions, nothing has taught me more than the Playhouse has.
Before the Playhouse, I could not sing in front of others without being morbidly terrified; I could not start a conversation without anyone there to help me; all in all, I could not be myself.
With the Children’s Theatre program, I learned every person walking through the Conservatory doors has a gift to share and a story to tell. It has taught me how to be supportive.
The Playhouse has taught me more about living than anything else. I think that anyone, whether you decide to become a nurse or an actor, can gain something from theatre. Whether you’re acting on stage or in the audience, theatre can teach so much more about life than one would ever expect to find within a (sometimes) overly dramatic portrayal of living. The Duluth Playhouse has not only taught me to find faith in others, but faith in myself.
As the holiday season nears, I hope you’ll consider a tax-deductible gift to the Playhouse. Your generosity directly benefits the quality of experience, not just with the Playhouse, but with the Children’s Theatre and Underground as well.The Playhouse has already been here for over a century, and I know they plan to stick around for generations to come. They wouldn’t be here without supporters like you, and I honestly wouldn’t be here without the Playhouse.
Thank you so much, and best wishes this holiday season!” – Maddison (young actor and student)
“When my husband and I headed north, we were very sad to leave behind the vibrant theatre community in the cities. We were so delighted and surprised to find an equally vibrant theatre community on the north shore. We haven’t missed a show since we relocated — the Playhouse is our favorite way to spend a date night. We love this theatre and look forward t countless date nights to come!” – Amanda Joy, patron
“I went and saw Rock of Ages here. It was the first production I have seen since high school, and I had so much fun! The music was awesome, the cast was super friendly, and it was a great way to spend an evening.” – Josh Casavan, patron
“I can’t say enough about what they are dong at the Duluth Playhouse. The acting is superb. Watching Mary Poppins with my family, the performance was top notch. Mary Poppins (played by Ali Littrell Finstrom) was stellar. Each actor did an excellent job. A “must-do” great Duluth experience!” – Christopher Swanson, patron
“Fantastic production of Shrek: The Musical by the Children’s Theatre! We loved it. We came home and found the Broadway version on Netflix and agreed that we all liked the Playhouse version better! Fabulous cast with so much talent! This was my 9-year-old niece’s introduction to musical theatre, and I think she’s hooked!” – Jeanne Kurshoff, patron
“The staff is awesome and they do everything to make sure we have the best show and most lovely of experiences each and every time.” – Meghan Jarecki, Playhouse and Children’s Theatre performer
“We have been season ticket holders for a number of years and we have been thoroughly entertained by the quality of all performances. The production, the acting, the sets are all top notch.” – Edward Thompson, patron and season ticket holder
