For the past nine summers, young actors and actresses ages 13-18 have come together for one month to participate in the Duluth Playhouse Teen Summer Intensive. Here students learn all aspects of theatrical production by acting in and producing two plays, which are performed at the end of the program. This year, they are putting on Bob Fosse’s Chicago and William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
As we are about to open not one, but two, performances this weekend as part of our summer intensive programming, the Duluth Playhouse prepares to say good-bye (for now) to 11 seniors taking the stage one last time with the Children’s Theatre and the Teen Intensive program. We want to recognize those seniors who’ve brought so much to our productions over their years with us and let them tell you about their experiences with the Duluth Playhouse.
This summer the Duluth Playhouse Teen Intensive will be presenting the musical Chicago and William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
Let’s start with what the Duluth Playhouse Teen Intensive is all about. Each summer young actors and actresses get together to star and produce two shows in a repertory style.
Thank you so much to the enthusiastic crowd that came out to the Underground yesterday afternoon to celebrate the Playhouse and hear what’s coming to our stages in 2016-2017!
Along with announcing the Depot main stage, Underground, Children’s Theatre, and Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) series, there was also information and applications available on the 2016-2017 Playhouse Resident Company, updated Nor Shor theatre floor plans to view, and a plethora of opportunities to become more involved with the Playhouse from part-time paid positions to volunteering!

A little something from our director of FAME – The Musical: Kate Horvath.
FAME – THE MUSICAL retakes the main stage tomorrow night thru Sunday (March 17-20, with two shows on Saturday). Don’t miss this 80s poptastic production with a rocking band, show-stopping dances, and a cast that truly lights up the stage like a flame. Enjoy a few photos, then call 218.733.7555 to make your ticket reservations over the phone, or get them online at duluthplayhouse.org!
This summer, the Duluth Playhouse has six graduated seniors in its Teen Intensive program. As this is their last intensive and/or Children’s production of their theater career, we decided to have each individual write a brief tribute describing their experience at the Playhouse.

My time at the Duluth Playhouse has radically changed my life for the better. Not only have I developed as a performer, but I have also grown as a person. The past three years have been memorable, and I’m ready to take the next step of my life with the skills and confidence I have received.
