good times on the great lake

In Duluth, we don’t believe in boredom. With 12 months of festivals and fun-filled events, our calendar is packed with great times all year long and all across the city.


Decision Height

From the winner of the 2013 Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival comes this story about friendship and the complex though essential role of women in wartime. Virginia Hascall has left her home and fiancé to become a Women Airforce Service Pilot, doing her part to help defeat the Axis powers in World War II. Through triumph and tragedy, Virginia and her sisters in flight suits learn as much about themselves as they do about airplanes. As the war rages over there, the women form a sisterhood that cannot be broken, and Virginia must make a decision that will change her life forever. With a cast of nine vibrant female characters, Decision Height offers a look into an under-recognized subset of American heroes. “Decision Height” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
