Kickshaw Theatre

Live Professional Theater in Ann Arbor

Kickshaw Theatre engages, entertains, and educates people with gutsy, stylish live theater.


Kickshaw is dedicated to producing fresh new plays and revivals of great plays by playwrights that have been historically overlooked. We ask our audience to come to the show with curiosity and to lean forward and engage as the story unfolds. If you’re looking for fun and unique entertainment, Kickshaw Theater is for you!

Operating as a pop-up theater company, you may have seen our live performances at different Ann Arbor locations, including trustArt studios, the Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth, the Ann Arbor Art Center, the Heidelberg Club Above, Arbor Brewing Company, Espresso Royale, Workantile Exchange, and the Ann Arbor District Library.

Learn more about our upcoming performances, past productions, or our professional development and educational theater workshops. For news and updates, sign up for our email newsletter or follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
