The new NorShor will be the cornerstone of the Historic Arts and Theater District (HART) and play a central role in fulfilling Duluth’s vibrant future.” – Sandy Hoff, NorShor Theatre Capital Campaign Chair

A Legacy.

Years in the making

The NorShor Theatre is preparing for its new starring role. From the balcony to the box office, the landmark 1910 theater is undergoing a total restoration. After weathering its share of milestones and misfortune, a new life and new legacy are unfolding for this legendary landmark. At center stage in downtown Duluth’s Historic Arts and Theater (HART) District, the restored NorShor Theatre will bring new economic development, new productions, and new possibilities to the region.

The beloved NorShor Theatre is regaining its rightful place as the Northland’s beacon of arts, entertainment, and world-class performances.

A project this important comes along once in a lifetime.

In 2010, the City of Duluth made a bold decision to purchase the NorShor Theatre and surrounding real estate with the intent of returning it to life as a vibrant cultural center and source of economic development. Developer Sherman Associates and The Duluth Playhouse joined forces to transform and manage the facility. Once complete, The Duluth Playhouse will oversee the NorShor Theatre and its culturally rich experiences, engaging the regional arts community and featuring world-class events worthy of this soon-to-be-restored historic venue.
