Duluth Playhouse proudly announces their 2023-2024 Main Stage season, a thrilling combination of beloved classics and remarkable new productions. Through the power of live theatre, audiences will be transported to another time and place as they laugh, share a tender moment, and create new memories that will last a lifetime.
First up is Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein. Adapted from the classic Mel Brooks film, Young Frankenstein is a hysterical musical from the creators of the Broadway hit comedy, The Producers. Destined to be the holiday event of the season, in December the Playhouse will stage the iconic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music. The next production was the highest rated show on the 2023-2024 Season Survey. Due to licensing agreements, this title has to stay hush-hush for now, but audiences will be dying to attend this popular tale of murder and intrigue. The name of this play will be released to the public in July. In March, the Playhouse will present the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Next to Normal. This breathtaking story features an unforgettable rock score that will linger with audiences long after the performance ends. Up next, Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and limitless imagination to bring to life the tale of an orphan boy who became Peter Pan. Closing out the season will be 9 to 5 The Musical. Featuring a jubilant score by Dolly Parton, this hit Broadway musical, based on the iconic 1980 movie, is a comedic look at friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era.
