Mission:

The mission of The Huron Playhouse is to educate and enlighten youth and adults about all aspects of theater performance and operations and to entertain the residents of and visitors to our surrounding communities.

History:

In the summer of 1949, under the guidance of Professor Frederick Walsh of Bowling Green State University, the Huron Playhouse opened its doors for the first summer season with the light wartime comedy John Loves Mary. For well over half a century, the Playhouse has continued to provide to actors and community a well-balanced season of comedies, dramas, mysteries, melodramas, Shakespeare, children's theatre, and musicals. In 2011, the Playhouse affiliation with BGSU ended and it is now managed by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Local donors, sponsors and patrons support the Playhouse.

Over the years, the Playhouse has maintained a constant commitment to high quality. Five full-scale productions are mounted in an intensive eight week season, with each show enjoying a five night run. Many alumni from the Playhouse have gone on to perform on Broadway, in regional theatre, television, feature films, and commercials. Others have directed their talents and skills to the technical, producing, and/or teaching aspects of theatre or film. The Huron Playhouse company includes approximately 50 members including acting, technical, and administrative staff. Free room and board, and a stipend are provided to the students by the Playhouse. The company's experience of living together, eating together, working and creating together, has fostered a family atmosphere that many have found hard to leave behind at the end of the summer. Lifelong friendships, marriages, and business associations have resulted from a summer at the Playhouse.
