YOU ARE OFFICIALLY INVITED to “Singing with the Stars”! ⁣

Duluth is gathering for “one night only” at the NorShor Theatre for a roaring good time of lighthearted competition in support of the Playhouse. This unforgettable night will feature a variety of local personalities living out their Broadway dreams on the NorShor stage. Throughout the evening, guests will vote for their favorite performers, resulting in the very first winner of “Singing with the Stars”. ⁣

The contestants for this remarkable evening are Don Ness (Ordean Foundation), Dan Hanger (Fox 21), Ivy Vainio (AICHO), Solomon Witherspoon (Spoon’s Restaurant), Martha Bremer (Communitarian), Lynn Williams (University of Minnesota Duluth), Peter Singler (Essentia Health), Carl Crawford (City of Duluth), Classie Dudley (NAACP), and Christina Woods (Duluth Arts Institute). ⁣

Celebrity judges Kenny Johnson (WDIO); Jeanne Ryan (Townsquare Media/Mix 108); and Gabriel Mayfield (Life House Youth Center) will offer cheeky banter after each performance. ⁣

Don’t miss this night of glitz and glamour! Guests will be greeted with champagne as they enter the NorShor on a red carpet. Hors d’oeuvres and a decadent dessert bar will be provided by Black Woods and Greysolon Catering. All attendees will be entered into a drawing for special prizes and enjoy a sneak-peek of the Playhouse’s upcoming production of “Into the Woods”.⁣

This unforgettable evening in the HART District is critical to the sustainability of Duluth Playhouse. Funds raised will allow the Playhouse to continue to create opportunities in theatrical arts that educate, entertain, and engage our community so that young and old can stay inspired and connected. ⁣

Duluth Playhouse believes that theatre is for everyone, so we created our Community Preview Nights to build relationships with diverse community groups across the Northland. We are bringing the community together on and off the stage by investing in local groups and offering the clients they serve greater access to our productions.

Community Preview Nights allow community-serving organizations and groups to experience a Duluth Playhouse show and remove financial barriers for their staff or clients who otherwise might be unable to attend. We offer a rotation of invited guests to our free Community Preview Night Performance, which is always the Wednesday before Opening Night.

To get on the rotating guest list, please email boxoffice@duluthplayhouse.org with the following information:

  • Business/Organization Name
  • Contact Name
  • Contact Email and phone number
  • Size of Group

You will be emailed when it is your turn in the rotation to attend the complimentary performance. You will be emailed tickets to the performance if you confirm that the date works for your group. Our Community Preview Night Performances at the NorShor are assigned seating with tickets.

Your guests must bring the tickets to the event to gain entry. Entry is through the Box Office access to the theatre (not the Main Entrance under the marquee). The theatre doors will be open for guests at 7:00 p.m. for seating.

Once you are invited and confirm the date works for your group, you will receive an email with the tickets. If you have printer access, you can print the tickets from that email or stop by the NorShor Box Office (211 E. Superior St.) during business hours (Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.), and we can print the confirmed tickets for you.

There is a lot of interest in our free Community Preview Night Performances. We do our best to rotate through groups to get everyone in as quickly as possible. Our Community Preview Nights Performances have been consistently filling up and are offered each season. Thank you for your patience.
