About Us

Mission Statement

The mission of Duluth Playhouse is to create opportunities in theatrical arts that educate, entertain, and engage the region.

Duluth Playhouse offers exceptional entertainment, training, and performance opportunities in theatre arts that inspires, challenges, and engages the region we serve. Founded in 1914, the Playhouse is one of the nation’s oldest non-profit theatres. We produce year-round seasons packed with dramas and musicals and much more along with year-round programming within our School of Performing Arts for youth and adults alike.

Playhouse Diversity Statement

Duluth Playhouse is committed to offering equitable opportunities that support diversity in our programming and creating an inclusive environment.  Duluth Playhouse does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, gender identification, national origin, age, disability, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, or any other legally protected status.

Content Considerations

Duluth Playhouse does not provide opinion or judgment regarding subject matter, as the contents of each production will impact individuals differently based on their lived experiences. If you have questions about content or stage effects such as strobe lighting or haze, please contact our team at BoxOffice@DuluthPlayhouse.org or call 218-733-7555.
