Amphitheater roof collapses, canceling summer show in northeast North Dakota
Frost Fire Summer Theatre will still host a summer day camp and other activities at the lodge.
WALHALLA, N.D. — The Frost Fire Summer Theatre has announced the cancellation of their 39th annual production after the roof and walls over their amphitheater collapsed.
Heavy snowfall in a late April storm caused the collapse, the group said in a statement issued Wednesday, May 3.
“We were hoping that maybe we could just delay our starting date to get the repairs done. But after closer inspection by the insurance adjusters and an engineer, they believe it will take most of the summer to repair," director Amy Jo Paukert said in the statement.
While the stage is closed for the season, Frost Fire will host two summer day camps at the lodge, as well as events and other entertainment in the lodge, the group said.
The group is accepting donations through their website or via check to P.O. Box 888 Walhalla, ND 58282.
Frost Fire will reach out to people who purchased tickets to discuss refunds, the group said.
