  • Does Shakespeare in Detroit perform all year round?
    Yes. Our traditional season is September through June, including our work in schools. However, we also have a summer show, which we consider our community service, providing access to theatre for ALL. It is our goal to make sure we offer you the best possible productions as we build an organization that we hope will become a staple in the theatre community here in Michigan and a destination for theatre lovers across the globe. In addition, it is important that the company produces work that inspires new theatre patrons to support the art form and build new generations of Shakespeare fans. We will also continue to produce readings and pop-up events throughout the season to compliment our full-fledged productions.
