New Life.

A Restoration story

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

A Legacy.

Years in the making


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 now oversees the NorShor Theatre and its culturally rich experiences, engaging the regional arts community and featuring world-class events worthy of this now-restored historic venue.
