Spotlight on Lake Superior Theatre


Ashley Beronja

The Lake Superior Theatre sits along the lake in between the Ellwood A Mattson Lower Harbor Park and the Marquette Maritime Museum. The theatre has been around since 1998 and continues to carry the mission of providing the Marquette and Upper Peninsula community the opportunity to experience live performances. Currently, the theatre has an emphasis on historical musical dramas.

“As we prepare to set sail on our 2021 season, we hope to see you in the Boathouse once again as our community discovers our new normal together,” Peggy Frazier, board director, said. “Our team is prepared to comply with all CDC and state health guidelines, and pending positive status reports on the COVID-19 vaccine and the state of Michigan’s response we plan to gather in the theatre once again.”

Lake Superior Theatre works to make sure that people of all abilities, races, ethnicity, economic status, sexual orientation and gender identity are accommodated for. 

“Our rehearsal and performance spaces are ADA compliant and we provide all-gender restrooms,” LST website said. “Our program is welcoming to participants who have individual physical, learning and social needs.” 

The current summer lineup for the LST offers nine shows that everyone in the community can watch. The first show will be The Last Five Years directed by Leslie Parkkonen from July 6-10 and the last show will be Superior Memories from August 24-26. For the full lineup, go to their website and search under Summer 2021.
