Founded in 1947, Grosse Pointe Theatre is a nonprofit community theater group with a rich tradition of providing artistic excellence through the performing arts.
In addition to offering more than 50 performances each season, Grosse Pointe Theatre is involved in civic and charitable activities. For over 40 years, Grosse Pointe Theatre has provided scholarships to local high school students to support their studies in both the creative and technical areas of the performing arts. Since 2006, the group has awarded 71 scholarships, granting more than $60,800.
Local charities as well as families and seniors in need of assistance during the holiday season benefit from the generosity of Grosse Pointe Theatre members who continue to give back to the community. The group also participates in various community activities year-round.
Membership in Grosse Pointe Theatre is open to anyone age 18 and older and all volunteers are welcome. In addition, Grosse Pointe Theatre offers its Youth on Stage program for youth ages 8 -14; and its Purdon Studio Theatre for non-traditional theater in an intimate performance setting.
Grosse Pointe Theatre's approximately 400 members ? all volunteers ? include people of all ages, from all walks of life throughout southeast Michigan who are united by their love of the performing arts. The group relies on the generosity of donors, sponsors, community partners and season ticket holders, as well as individual ticket sales, to help cover the cost of royalties, theater rental and production costs to sustain its operation.
Main-stage evening performances are at 8 p.m.; Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.
Grosse Pointe Theatre looks forward to serving the community and region for many years to come and invites everyone to join them as they continue to entertain, educate, inspire and engage through the performing arts.
