Here at the Duluth Playhouse, we make it a priority to offer a theatre experience that can be enjoyed by all patrons.

If you have specific questions or would like an accommodation not listed below, please contact our Patron Services Director at boxoffice@duluthplayhouse.org or 218.733.7555.

Wheelchair & Accessible Seating

  • Please view our seating chart for indicated locations (in Row E) at the Depot Theatre, which are reserved for our patrons using wheelchairs. Wheelchair and Accessible Seating locations for The Underground Theatre will be determined by the flexible seating configuration that is used for individual productions. The NorShor Theatre also reserves seats for our patrons using wheelchairs.

Courtesy Wheelchairs

  • A limited number of wheelchairs are available free of charge on a first come, first serve basis for use inside the NorShor and Depot theatres. Patrons may borrow courtesy wheelchairs if needed; please touch base with the House Manager the day of the performance.

Assistive Listening

  • Our assistive listening system uses microphones during musical performances to enhance words spoken on stage by separating speech from the background noise. This system amplifies the actors and brings the sound directly into the patrons’ ears. The receivers are coupled with headphones and may be borrowed from the Box Office the night of a performance.

ASL Interpreted Performances

  • If you are interested in having an American Sign Language Interpreted performance by certified interpreters for an upcoming performance, please inquire or send request specific services at least one month prior to the date of performance you wish to attend.  Email boxoffice@duluthplayhouse.org or call 218.733.7555.
  • ASL-Interpreted Performances for the 2017-2018 season are as follows:
    • The Music Man: July 19 @ 7:30pm (NorShor Theatre)

Audio Description

  • Audio Description is the art of talking pictorially or becoming a “verbal camera lens,” to enable audience members who are blind or have low vision to hear descriptions of actions, body language, lights, costumes, scenery and other aspects of the production not conveyed by voices from the stage.

Service Animals

  • Service animals, such as guide dogs, are permitted to assist Playhouse visitors.

Large Print Materials

  • Large print materials are available at the Box Office upon request. These materials are provided free of charge.

High Magnification Glasses

  • High Magnification Glasses for vision enhancement are available free of charge on a first come, first serve basis and are available at the Box Office the night of a performance.

  • For the Underground: Restrooms are located just outside the theatre doors.
  • For the NorShor: Restrooms are located on both the main and mezzanine levels. On the main floor, the restrooms are located across from the Concessions booth and entrance into the auditorium. On the mezzanine level, restrooms are located on either side of the Mezzanine Bar.
