For forty years, families and teachers have made Wild Swan Theater a tradition, delighting in our magical, lively productions performed by our award-winning troupe of professional adult actors, dancers, musicians, and American Sign Language performers. As the first professional theater dedicated to young people in Michigan, we realize that parents and teachers alike count on us to bring to life the very best in children’s classics, introduce stories from other cultures in an accessible and fun way, and provide a theatrical experience like no other.
