Howmet Playhouse

Howmet PlayhouseThe historic Howmet Playhouse has been in almost constant operation since its opening in 1916. Built by the renowned Chicago director Frank R. Adams and local business owner James Nufer, its design was copied from Chicago’s LaSalle Theater and was built for professional live theatrical presentations and motion pictures. The Playhouse has been greeting White Lake area audiences ever since.

In 2007 Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp offered to donate the Playhouse to the City of Whitehall. Realizing the Playhouse’s importance to Whitehall, and all of the White Lake area, the City accepted the donation and committed to continuing Playhouse operations.
