About Calumet Theatre Co.
The Village of Calumet was incorporated in 1875 when it was the center of the copper mining industry in North America. As the community grew, the Town Hall was built in 1886; and in 1898, with a huge surplus in the treasury, it was decided that an opera house was needed to serve the community. At that time the village had a population of approximately 4000 and more than 30,000 lived within walking distance. The Theatre opened on March 20, 1900 with a touring Broadway production of Reginald DeKoven's The Highwaymen.
The Theatre annually hosts 60-80 events with a total attendance of nearly 18,000. Nearly all of the performing arts disciplines are represented, including symphony, folk music, jazz, opera, theatre, dance, and community events, as well as public meetings and guided tours.
The Calumet Theatre is a National Historic Landmark.
