Outreach Services

How To Participate

The Repertory conducts a number of important outreach services. Phone inquiries should be directed to Repertory offices, 313-868-1347 or Email or click here to fill out an online form.

Charitable Partnerships

The Detroit Repertory Theatre Charitable Outreach Program helps groups and organizations help the needy by providing them with an inexpensive venue to raise funds. The return on investment for booking a performance can be as high as 30
0 or 400 percent. Charitable causes raise over $250,000 a year in this manner. Interested parties can inquire about a fundraising partnership with the Repertory by contacting DRT Group Sales Manager. Find out more about Fundraisers.

Cultural Fellowship Program

The Cultural Fellowship Program is an educational service by which tickets are systematically distributed to clients of social and private agencies serving the disenfranchised, the challenged, and the underserved from the inner and outer city so that they can attend performances at the Detroit Repertory Theatre on a regular basis. 60 to 80 agencies partner with the Repertory each year. The Cultural Fellowship Program recognizes that regular attendance is necessary if the cultural experience is to impact effectively. The goal is to help create an alternative life style, not merely provide a visit. Agencies can form a Cultural Fellowship Partnership with the DRT by contacting DRT Director of Outreach Programs.

Acting Workshop

The Acting Workshop Program provides professional instruction in all phases of theatre, especially but not exclusively, to persons who are financially constrained, or cannot attend institutional programs, but still wish to pursue a theatrical career, revive a dormant interest in theatre, or simply investigate a need for self-expression. Individuals may inquire about scholarships, tuition and participation in the DRT Acting Workshop by contacting the DRT Workshop Director, Lynch Travis.

Arts in Education Programs

The Detroit Repertory Theatre Arts in Education In-school Programs include teaching drama (1) as part of school curriculums or as an extra curricular activity (2) as part of a school's multi-arts program, or (3) as total integration of the arts with the core-curricula of the school. The Repertory conducts Arts Centered Education (ACE) Programs which enhance learning by integrating the arts into language arts, math, social studies, and science. The Repertory serves as the Anchor Organization for a partnership between ACE programming in schools and Learning Via Arts.

The Repertory Arts in Education Program also conducts after-school and summer programming for elementary, middle and high school levels, which includes drama, dance and visual arts, for various organizations, including Communities in Schools, The Children's Center of Wayne County, and the Empowerment Zone Coalition. School systems, School systems, Churches and other Bodies wishing to form an Educational Partnership with the DRT may contact the DRT Director of Education, Milfordean Luster.

New Playwrights' Program

The New Playwrights’ Program was established in 1976 to give authors a place for professional production of their original scripts, and to bring the works of new writers to the attention of theatregoers in Southeastern Michigan. Special attention is given to Michigan playwrights. Scripts are read and evaluated by a team of theatre professionals. An evaluation is sent to the author. Playwrights wishing to submit scripts for consideration should address scripts to the Detroit Repertory Theatre, c/o The Literary Manager, 13103 Woodrow Wilson, Detroit 48238-3686. A self addressed return envelope and postage should be included.

Lobby Gallery

Original paintings and photographs are displayed in the lobby of the Repertory throughout the DRT’s season. Michigan artists submit their portfolios. When chosen, their works are exhibited and sold during the run of each DRT production. The Rep collects no commission. Artists wishing to exhibit at the DRT Lobby Gallery may contact the DRT Gallery Manager, William Boswell or Curator, Jocelyn Rainey.
