The Grand Marais Playhouse started in 1971. As we prepare to celebrate our 50th Season in 2021, we are gathering our stories around us, sifting through pictures, letters, news articles, programs, and even costumes and props that have held so much emotional value over the years.
In October 2018, director Sue Hennessy gave a presentation about the Playhouse at a conference of the Minnesota Theater Alliance. We are posting it below with related videos to begin the conversation and to trigger some happy memories of the Playhouse past.
If you have a Grand Marais Playhouse story to share please send it along, either as a video or a letter. We would love to hear your tales!within and outside the walls of the theater, are cultivated, encouraged, and supported.

We LOVED the town of Grand Marais. This hotel was the perfect location to walk anywhere in the town. It was so convenient to just walk to restaurants, shopping and the beach. The view from the room was fantastic and unexpected. The room had a little patio that overlooked the lake. It was very clean and had a nice tile shower with a double shower head. So much nicer than what I expected. They also had a very nice fitness room, which I didn’t use since the weather was great and we got lots of exercise outdoors. But this would be great in the winter or inclement weather. There was a free breakfast which was nice. They kept it clean and well maintained, which I noticed and appreciated. Can’t wait for our next trip! We will definitely stay here again!
