Box Office & Ticket Information


Our Box Office location is no longer located at the Depot (506 W. Michigan St.). Our new Box Office location is now at the NorShor Theatre, located at 211 East Superior Street.


Our Box Office hours are Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm, and Saturdays, 10am-6pm.

NOTE: Our Box Office only observes weekend hours when a production is performing on the NorShor Theatre stage.

During performances, the Box Office opens one-hour ahead of curtain and the house opens for seating 30-minutes prior to the show’s scheduled start.

Tickets can be purchased online (the fastest service), by calling 218.733.7555 or stopping by our box office in person. Seating availability is updated in real-time via Vendini when making a purchase online, so what you see is what our box office staff sees!
