Old Town Playhouse
Old Town Playhouse was created in April 1960 to bring amateur theatre to northern Michigan.Located just three blocks from downtown Traverse City, the Old Town Playhouse season runs annually from September through May with a variety of productions. Performance areas include a 277-seat mainstage auditorium and an 80-seat studio theatre. Seasonal attendance ranges from 20,000 – 23,000 patrons. The youth education arm of Old Town Playhouse, the OTP Young Company (formerly known as the Traverse City Children’s Theatre) provides performance and educational activities for youth age preschool through college.
The Playhouse is primarily a volunteer-based organization, promoting quality community theatre experiences for the people of Northwest Michigan, through entertainment and educational opportunities in the theatrical arts.
