Plans To Reopen Ann Arbor's Performance Network Theatre Coming Together

Performance Network Theatre
Performance Network Theatre

Ann Arbor's Performance Network Theatre may re-open in the fall with operating expenses cut roughly in half.  Former staff members and other supporters will present the proposal to the Performance Network Theatre board next week, less than a month after operations were suspended.  

Proposed Executive Producer Daniel Walker says they will need help in addressing old debt.  He says the plan is to fundraise and hopefully have the debt taken care of before shows start in October.

The proposal includes a slighlty reduced season with a focus on the professional productions and Fireside Festival of New Plays.  Walker thinks maintaining the Performance Network name is key because it allows them to stay in the existing location on Huron.

Like many, I first came to this area when I started school at the University of Michigan, then fell in love with the community and haven’t left. After graduating from U of M in the mid 1990’s I interned at WDET for several years, while also working a variety of jobs in Ann Arbor. Then in 1999 I joined the WEMU news team.
