About Shakespeare in Detroit

SID-AChristmasCarol-2.jpg

Shakespeare in Detroit (SiD), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, pioneered the first open-air production of The Bard in Detroit — and with an all-local cast — in August 2013 with Othello at Grand Circus Park.

SiD has engaged with more than 13,000 audience members from several social locations from the city and from outside of Detroit, serving as a cultural commons for all people.

The company finds it imperative to produce exciting, live productions of Shakespeare’s works at various sites throughout the city — from traditional theaters to nontraditional spaces — to give access to both new and conventional theater audiences, while highlighting Detroit’s vast array of historical structures, venues and parks. This site-specific template has created a movement of new audiences for classical theater in the city of Detroit and challenged the status quo as it concerns Shakespeare’s canon.

In addition to its site-specific work, SiD is proud to support, hire and advocate for theater that creates spaces that are both affirmative and reflective, providing an accurate depiction of Southeast Michigan and the world around us.

SiD’s productions have been seen everywhere from a recycling center and a historical mansion to parks and an old film studio, along with several theaters around the city and state, earning a reputation as one of the most exciting performing arts experiences in Detroit.
