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.

Box Office Hours: 10:00am-5:00pm

NEXT UP: Heroes and Villains of Broadway (October 19, 2019)

Please Note: This Thursday and Friday (October 17 & 18), the sidewalk directly in front of the NorShor Theatre (and stretching from the GreySolon to the Temple Opera building) will be closed for construction crews to pour cement and have it set and ready for audiences visiting this weekend for Heroes and Villains of Broadway. If you’re planning on making a visit to our Box Office, the NorShor will be accessible via the skywalk through the Medical District parking ramp, located on 1st Street, behind the Sheraton Hotel.

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.
