The Jackman Dramatic Art Centre, home of the School of Dramatic Art, houses the intimate 80-seat Studio Theatre, used for smaller productions.
The city also boasts a variety of community, professional, and semi-pro theatre companies.
Touring production companies bring Broadway shows to such Detroit venues as the Fox Theatre and the Fisher Theatre. Full seasons are mounted each year by the
Detroit Repertory Theatre and the drama department of Wayne State University, which operates the Bonstelle, Hilberry and Studio theatres.
