About UsAnn Arbor Civic Theatre was founded in 1929 (a year after the first Academy Awards were presented!) After 4 years of organizing, the theatre presented its first drama, The Late Christopher Bean. The performance venues, offices & personnel have changed, but we are still here. Hundreds of shows later, we continue to provide theatre opportunities for all members of the community, as well as provide quality entertainment for Southeast Michigan and Northeast Ohio.
