Fourth Wall Society

Giving Society

The Fourth Wall Society is the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre's giving society. The name "fourth wall" is a concept commonly used in theatre to reference an invisible, imagined wall which separates actors from the audience.

The fourth wall is what allows an audience to experience a story, rather than being told a story. The fourth wall invites play-goers into the majestic world created onstage; all while never leaving your seat. The fourth wall is what makes theatre special. Even-though members of the society may not seen on stage, they are absolutely essential to our foundation.
