The Penny Seats Theatre Company

www.pennyseats.org Ann Arbor

The Penny Seats espouses a mission of being minimalists and penny-pinchers. The company believes theater should be fun and stirring, not stuffy or repetitive.  The principals of Penny Seats believes going to a show should not break the bank.

The company produces dramas and comedies, musicals and original adaptations, classics, works by up-and-coming playwrights, cabaret shows, acting classes and wacky improv evenings. Most of the company’s performances have been held at West Park in Ann Arbor on balmy summer evenings, as well as at Conor O’Neill’s Irish Pub in Ann Arbor.
