Encore Michigan

The Ringwald Theatre

The Ringwald is located in the “Times Square of Ferndale,” just south of Nine Mile on the east side of Woodward. The Ringwald produces work that will blur the lines between race, income, religion and sexuality. Seasons will include productions focusing primarily on newer works, previously un-produced scripts, and fresh interpretations of seasoned classics.

The Ringwald opened its doors in May 2007 with “Fatal Attraction: A Greek Tragedy” and quickly became a mainstay of Detroit’s theater community. The Ringwald is dedicated to providing a creative environment for local artists to produce works that challenge, confront, and entertain.
