Thanks to all who attended our event on Saturday night, “There’s Still Magic at The Playhouse” featuring Michael Mage.  It was a great success and a good time was had by all!  Special thanks to Melissa of Blue Ribbon Catering.  The food was amazing and we can’t thank you enough for the use of the hall!

SAVE THE DATES

  • “A Night at the Races” will take place on October 14 at the Blue Ribbon Catering Hall, 1023 Main St., Huron, OH.  A fun night of horse racing and gambling with food and drinks!  Time and ticket cost to be announced soon.
  • December 9 is the date for our children’s show with magician/comedian Michael Mage.  It will be fun for all ages.  Time, event location and cost will be announced soon.  

HURON PLAYHOUSE TO TAKE HIATUS

 The Board of Directors of The Huron Playhouse announces that the 69th Season has been suspended due to circumstances that prevent the presentation of superior performances this summer.

Over the next 10 months, the board and staff are planning to restructure and develop an 18-month operating plan that will make the future brighter and financially sustainable.

The board wishes to extend heartfelt thanks for the recent show of support by several foundations, as well as the public, with their generous donations.  While it was hoped that the 2017 season could take place, it has become evident that it would be more prudent to review the operation and make significant improvements in order to reopen in 2018.

All ticket holders will be contacted and public input will be sought concerning the future of The Huron Playhouse.

Donations are still very welcome and needed as we do incur operating expenses year-round.  Thank you very much.

VOLUNTEER

Become a Huron Playhouse Ambassador!  We are looking for enthusiastic patrons who would like the opportunity to share their excitement and support of The Huron Playhouse.  Our Ambassador program offers a complimentary ticket the night of service and discounts on other evenings.*  Opportunities to assist with parking, ushering, greeting, intermission sales, Box Office and promotional events offer our Ambassadors the chance to become Playhouse experts.

Parking Support:  We greet patrons and direct our patrons to parking spaces that will enable the easiest exit for them at the end of the evening as well as direct those with special needs to closer parking spaces with easy entry and exit.  Our Parking Support Ambassador should be friendly and excited to see our patrons as well as guide them to the closest entrance and assist with any questions they may have.  This is our patron’s first contact with The Huron Playhouse and we’d like to assure them a positive experience.

Ushers:  This is for those people who love to assist others and share their excitement for theater while providing an exceptional experience.  The usher should be able to answer any questions our patrons have or know where the information can be found.  They work closely with the House Manager and Box Office while guiding our patrons to the correct seat and also assisting them until they are seated.

Contact us at 419-433-4744 if interested! There are numerous other ways in which you can give time to The Huron Playhouse.  Please take a look at our updated Volunteer Form for ways to become involved in The Huron Playhouse!  Please contact the office for more information.
