The greatest family musical of all time takes the NorShor Theatre stage this holiday season!


Living on a Kansas farm with her aunt, uncle, and dog Toto, Dorothy Gale wishes for more. When a twister hits, Dorothy is whisked away to a fantastical world filled with munchkins, a living scarecrow, a tin man with no heart, a cowardly lion…and a wicked witch that will do whatever it takes to get her hands on Dorothy’s ruby slippers!

Don’t miss your chance to travel over the rainbow and down the yellow brick road because there is truly no place like home!

Tough as Steel, Delicate as Magnolias

January 30-February 9, 2020


Thursday-Saturday @ 7:30pm, Sunday @ 2pm (February 9)

Hairspray is flying at Truvy’s beauty shop where the motto is “There is no such thing as natural beauty.”

Over the buzz of blow dryers, six southern spitfires gather each week to gossip, needle, and support each other through thick and thin from weddings and divorces to babies and funerals. And they do it all with grace, determination, and perfectly coiffed hair.

This love story of six friends is pinned full of humor, heart, and enduring friendship.

Always look on the bright side of life!

March 19-April 5, 2020


Thursday-Saturday @ 7:30m, Sunday @ 2pm

Lovingly ripped off from the motion picture, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot is the irreverent parody of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.

In this Best Musical Tony Award winner, the quest for the Holy Grail challenges these noblemen to keep their heads on straight or die terribly weird deaths.

With lively musical numbers, strange places, and even stranger people, this is a night of theater that will have audiences rolling in the aisles.

  • Performed at the NorShor Theatre
  • Presenting Sponsor: Duluth News Tribune

The question is...whodunnit?!

May 7-17, 2020


Thursday-Saturday @ 7:30pm, Sunday @ 2pm (May 17)

Twists and thrilling turns abound when a group of strangers becomes stranded in an English country boarding house, cut off by a sudden snowstorm. Just before the phone lines go dead, they discover there may be a murderer in their midst. But…whodunnit?!

Is it one of the suspicious newlyweds or the spinster with the curious background? Perhaps it’s the architect (who seems more suited being a chef), the retired Army major or the strange man running from his past.

The intrigue builds as Agatha Christie’s best-known head scratcher unfolds to its surprising conclusion.

It's an amazing journey....take it, see it, feel it.

July 9-26, 2020


Thursday-Saturday @ 7:30pm, Sunday @ 2pm (July 26)

Based on The Who’s iconic 1960s rock opera, The Who’s Tommy is a five-time Tony Award-winning exhilarating story of hope, healing and the human spirit.

Young Tommy, after witnessing the accidental murder of his mother’s lover by his father, is traumatized into catatonia. Reaching his teenage years, he discovers he has an uncanny knack for pinball. Shooting to superstardom and becoming the Pinball Wizard, Tommy breaks free from his constraints and inspires youth around the world.

Pete Townshend’s tale of a young boy’s journey from pain to triumph is the most electrifying evening of rock and roll ever to play in a theatre!

Shimmy over to the NorShor Theatre to see Broadway’s longest-running musical revue that will blow the roof off and bring the house down!

Leiber and Stoller practically invented rock n’ roll, and Smokey Joe’s Cafe isn’t just great pop music; it’s compelling musical theatre.

Nominated for seven Tony Awards, this show features electrifying hits made famous by the likes of Elvis Presley, the Coasters and the Drifters. Enjoy classic tunes, like “On Broadway,” “Yakety Yak, “Jailhouse Rock,” “Love Potion #9,” and “Stand By Me.”
