THEATRE OPENS

LST will launch 2019 season with performances of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’

While stunning performances can be experienced with regularity inside the Lake Superior Theatre, so too can stunning views of Lake Superior be found at the theatre’s doorstep as it is located in the historic boathouse on the waterfront in downtown Marquette. (Photo courtesy of LST)

ARTS & HUMANITIES • By Peggy Frazier
Really? This is our summer after the long winter? It often seems when we are working at the Boathouse during June to transition into the theatre that we wished we had heating instead of an air conditioner. The sun beams down its warmth on the cold water; the fog descends and our view turns mystical.
As much as I love this opportunity to share my passion about Lake Superior Theatre, starting to write about it is always the hardest part. I wanted to write about how we welcome summer with a touch of summer tan, the opportunity to walk or ride the bike path, the Wednesday night Ensign sailors rounding the mark, and the smell of the lilacs blooming their little hearts out. This spring it was more about brisk breezes and the chilly winds.
I loved Heather Mlsna’s article in Marquette Neighbors about “Tell Your Story.” Her point—that our stories end when we do, but if we communicate with our families about our heritage our stories will live on—motivated us. We are going to add a page to our website for your thoughts. Share your story with LST and you might find it incorporated into a historical play!
This year brings more kudos for Marquette. BuzzFeed recently identified the “38 Most Beautiful Places in America.”  Marquette was listed as No. 34. A BuzzFeed contributor writes, “The cold weather just adds to the feeling of peace when you look out onto Lake Superior…The downtown area makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside…It’s such a classic downtown, little shops and restaurants…It is one of the best cities on Earth…”
We are proud that LST has done its part to make the downtown warm and fuzzy as well as economically viable. Marquette also secured the top spot in a recent USA Today 10 Best Reader’s Choice contest. The recognition lauds Marquette County as the best Small Town for Adventure…
