Announcing the 2017-2018 Seasons!


The Duluth Playhouse is proud to announce its 2017-2018 seasons for its Main Stage, Underground, Children’s Theatre, and Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) series.

This is a remarkable season because it also includes the inaugural season for the NorShor Theatre, projected to premiere its first performance in February 2018! Featuring six sensational titles in the Main Stage season, the Duluth Playhouse is ready for its next stage at the NorShor Theatre and its 650-seat theatre.

New, bold and classic titles alike await with the Underground Theatre and Playhouse Children’s Theatre, and we cannot wait to share them with audiences!
