2018-19 Season & Play Sponsorship Opportunities

Thirty-nine years of rave reviews from children, families, educators, and the press has made Wild Swan Theater a “local treasure.” Ann Arbor Family calls us “the most important and accomplished ensemble of its kind in America.” As a producer of new and original plays and music, we have received numerous awards for our ingenious artistry, innovative audience accessibility program, and projects for participants with disabilities. We appreciate when parents tell us:

“How beautifully you incorporate values into everything you do. You are truly focused on kids – all kinds and varieties of them. The world needs more and more of this.”

“I raised four children in Ann Arbor and enjoyed all of the kid-friendly educational opportunities Southeast Michigan and Metro Detroit had to offer. As an arts educator/teacher I can say that Wild Swan Theater was the absolute best for accessible, fun, and creative theater and camp experiences for kids.”
