Take a Seat and more with the Duluth Playhouse!

On November 16, we hope you'll consider the Duluth Playhouse on Minnesota's great Give to the Max Day to help us keep doing what we do --- bringing the best live entertainment to Duluth and the region! By donating to our theatre, you're not just supporting one venue...you're supporting a wide breadth of talent from our main stage to the Playhouse Family Theatre to the Underground, and now, to the new life and new legacy coming soon at the NorShor Theatre!

Take a Seat at the NorShor Theatre!

With the NorShor Theatre’s Grand Opening just three months from today (with a February 1 production of Mamma Mia!), and with the theater’s 630 plush seats about to be installed, area residents are being invited to participate in the theater’s final steps in a way that is long lasting and meaningful to their families or businesses.

We. the Duluth Playhouse, who will be managing the theater and leading its final fundraising, have officially launched our “Take A Seat” campaign. For $1,000, which can be paid by check or credit card over two years, a donor can have an engraved plate placed on a seat that identifies an individual, couple, family, business, memorializes a birthday or anniversary, and so on.

"Take your seat" by choosing the $1,000 option when making your donation, or visit norshortheatre.com/give to learn more about our Take-A-Seat Campaign. You can also learn about other giving options as well.
