    Hello, I am very interested in when you hold auditions for your upcoming seasons. Thank you!

  • By Nicole Pitts

    I would like more information about your theater: number of seats, cost per seat for theater rental, availability of your theater for events for our non-profit organization.

    Many thanks,

      Ms. Pitts,

      Hello! It was my pleasure to have met you at the Red Door. Just so you know, Plowshares Theatre Company doesn’t have a dedicated venue at the moment. We rent space from other organizations.

      To answer your other questions, we do work with nonprofits and have rates especially designed for charitable organizations. We are in the process of finalizing our upcoming season. I would love to talk to you about what you’re looking for in a fundraiser. When would be a good time to reach out to you?

      Gary Anderson
      Artistic Director
      Plowshares Theatre Co.

    My name is Melaney Love. I’m interested in becoming involved with your theater as a volunteer. I have a lot of experience as a production stage manager.

    I was the resident stage manager for a black theater group, the Unity Players Ensemble, in Los Angeles. We staged many critically acclaimed productions, including “The State of Mississippi Vs Emmett Till,” and “El Hajj Malik.”

    I can forward you my theatrical (as well as my non-theatrical) resume if you like, and you can decide if you’re interested in having me contribute to the Plowshares Theatre.

    Thank you for your time.
    Melaney Love

    Mr. Anderson- We are producing Ragtime in Bay View (Petoskey area) this summer. I am seeking a young (4-7yo) African American or African Descent child to play young Coalhouse, who runs in at the end of the show to complete the story of reconciliation. It’s an amazing moment. Don’t really need the young person to be a great actor, just confident enough to run into the arms of his new family at the right time, though a young actor would be great. The parents or caregivers would enjoy three nights stay in Petoskey, free tickets, and a small stipend toward meals while there.

    Any ideas or contacts with whom I might speak? We have an incredible cast assembled, including 12 African Americans for the Harlem chorus.
