It’s been another incredible year for the Penny Seats Theatre Company.
Hundreds came out to see our summer show, “Little Me,” at West Park in Ann Arbor, enjoying not only a fun musical, but the chance to put down a cozy blanket and have a picnic with loved ones while they watched. In addition to “Little Me,” we partnered with local restaurants, Ann Arbor Brewing Co. and Vellum, to bring you staged readings of “Thorstein the Staff-Struck,” written by our own Russ Schwartz, and “Nightfall,” a play adapted from Edgar Allen Poe’s most well-known writings. The events included themed menus, private dining spaces, and intimate performances.
That’s what it’s all about for us: we strive not simply to put on shows, but to create unique, affordable experiences you can’t find anywhere else in town. 2014 will be our most ambitious season yet. We'll have more offerings than ever before, including more restaurant partnerships and performances in new spaces. The season culminates with a modern translation of "Electra" at West Park. We're excited to get going, and can't wait to see you at our performances.
We pride ourselves on being able to make theatre accessible to everyone in our community—that’s what drives us to partner with local organizations (City of Ann Arbor Parks & Rec, A2 Senior Center, 826michigan, A La Rouge, and more). It’s also why we feel strongly about keeping the cost of ticket prices low. We’re able to do this thanks to you: our season is completely donor-funded!
As we continue to set ambitious goals for our theatre company, we look to our supporters for aid. We want to make sure our community can experience affordable, enjoyable theatre for years to come, but we can’t do that without your help. Any amount helps--and as always, a $100 donation gets you two free tickets to ALL of our shows this year.
