The Duluth Playhouse is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to promoting a healthy and cultural community. A vibrant arts scene is integral to a strong community and the Playhouse contributes to Minnesota’s Northeastern region with a variety of shows, classes, workshops and events to entertain and educate all ages and interests.
- Since its start in 2001, our Children’s Theatre Arts program has been rapidly expanding. We have classes offered year round in theatre and dance as well as three full children's theatre productions each year. Our education department has successfully been working with the Scottish Rite in producing a stage play program for children with autism as well as expanding outreach programs to make theatre accessible to hundreds of children each year.
- We have a continuing tradition of offering our tickets at a low cost along with full and partial scholarships for all classes offered. Grants and donations account for over 40% of the revenue in yearly budget. The Playhouse relies on donations from individuals annually as it is necessary for the endurance of our organization.
