About the Actors Workshop

Founded in 1975, the Detroit Repertory Theatre’s Actors Workshop is a ten-week actor’s training program. The Workshop provides professional instruction in all phases of theatre performance, especially, but not exclusively, to persons who are financially constrained, or cannot attend institutional programs, but still wish to pursue a theatrical career, revive a dormant interest in theatre, or simply investigate a need for self-expression.


Interested students should call the Detroit Repertory Theatre to make an appointment or for more information at (313) 868-1347.
