The Theatre Company at University of Detroit Mercy announces its 46th season. Performances will be held at The Marlene Boll Theatre at the Boll Family YMCA in downtown Detroit.
“In the upcoming 2016/17 season we are continuing to offer theatre that reflects are community, in our community,” states Managing Director Greg Grobis.
“Our 46th season has a little bit of everything: an impassioned charming drama, a truthful play centered on finding spiritual relevance, an uproarious American classic, and a puppet filled adult musical comedy,” says Grobis.
The Theatre Company’s 46th season will include: the regional premiere of Alabama Story by Kenneth Jones, 100 Saints You Should Know by Kate Fodor, the American classic Bus Stop by William Inge, and the smash hit adult musical comedy Avenue Q by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx with book by Jeff Whitty.
The 46th season will feature the launch of a new project entitled the Detroit Theatre Discussion Project (DTDP). With grant funding pending, each production during the 2016-2017 season will feature free preview events at local libraries and community centers, five post-show discussions with local experts, free tickets and special pricing for community members, and local restaurant and parking incentives. More information on the DTDP will be announced in August 2016.
