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.

The Box Office is closed as of 11/23/2020.

We are checking messages periodically, and for quicker service, please email boxoffice@duluthplayhouse.org and we will be in touch as soon as we can.

You can also contact us by phone (218.733.7555). Thank you!

REVIEW: ‘Tales from the Ghost Light’ a virtual mixed bag of horror October 30, 2020

A completely blackened theater, late at night, can be one of the scariest of places to be alone. Having been in many myself, I can attest to their eeriness and the powers of the imagination to create all sorts of ghostly visions and unearthly sounds. A ghost light is a single-bulbed light pole left on …

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.
