Northern Fort Playhouse Support

Become a sponsor to honor a special day or person, or just because you love Northern Fort Playhouse!

Isolation was a part of the daily lives of soldiers serving at Fort Wadsworth (now Fort Sisseton) in the 1860s. For the last year, as we have all endured the restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have also experienced times of isolation.


For soldiers and officers at Fort Wadsworth in the 1860s, it was traveling groups that stopped at the fort on the prairie to provide music and entertainment that made them laugh and lift their spirits.


Now, almost 150 years later, we hope that the music and entertainment of our 2021 season will renew the spirits of our audiences as we emerge from our own levels of isolation. The Northern Fort Playhouse (NFP) Board is committed to taking protective measures to insure our guests will have a safe environment as they enjoy quality live theatre for three weekends in July in the South Barracks on the beautiful grounds of Fort Sisseton State Historical Park. Dedicated professionals from the Northern State University Theatre Department will present two different and delightful shows during the 2021 season.


Helping to make each performance successful is the NFP Board of Directors, a group of volunteers from a three-county area that are passionate about providing live theatre in northeastern South Dakota. Last summer, with the safety of our cast, crew, audience and volunteers in mind, the board made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 season because of the spread of the Coronavirus. We are extremely grateful to those who offered donations as part of the “2020 Extraordinary Regiment” to help us meet our annual financial obligations as we experienced the loss of income from ticket sales.


This year, your financial support is more important than ever. Donations at any level will help continue the tradition of summer theatre at Fort Sisseton for its 15th season in 2021. As a member of The Regiment Corp. you will be recognized in the program and on our website. Those at the “Captain” level and higher will also receive two complimentary tickets.


For more information, call 605-467-3247. Thank you for considering a partnership with us to support and grow this unique theatre experience at historical Fort Sisseton.
