The Williamston Theatre is mid-Michigan’s only professional, resident theatre company, and operates under an agreement with the Actors’ Equity Association – the union of professional actors and stage managers. Located in picturesque downtown Williamston, the Williamston Theatre operates year-round, mounts six mainstage productions each season, and creates over 50 job opportunities each year for Michigan artists. It is a traditional three-quarter thrust black box and seats 100. In September 2014, the Williamston Theatre was one of twelve companies in the nation to receive the American Theatre Wing’s National Theatre Company Award. This award recognizes and supports the most promising emerging professional theatre companies across the country. Now in 2015, they have mounted a total of 55 productions including World Premieres, Michigan Premieres, musicals, comedies and tragedies. They focus on contemporary plays that represent life in the 21st Century and resonate with Midwestern audiences.
