As we near the end of the year, I sit back and take account of the past 11 months and I couldn’t be more proud. We sold out a performance of our February production for the first time in at least 10 years, engaged new artists, produced a regional premier, enjoyed a successful run of our inaugural Pit & Balcony After Dark production, expanded our summer youth program, provided a space for other area cultural organizations to present their work, and continued to see new faces come through our doors. We look forward to continued success in 2018 and look to you for support. As you’re making your end-of-year contributions, please consider Pit & Balcony. Your donation is tax-deductible and plays a huge part in allowing us to continue the work we do . Thank you. See Entire Newsletter here

Welcome to the first edition of Noises Off, Pit and Balcony’s newsletter. In the theatre “noises off” is a stage direction meaning sounds made offstage intended for the ears of the audience. You may also recognize it from our 2015-2016 season when we produced the Michael Frayn farce of the same name. This newsletter will serve as “noises off” for you to stay updated on all of the on and offstage happenings at Pit and Balcony as well as provide interesting tidbits, history, perspectives, sneak peeks of upcoming productions, volunteer opportunities, special events, and more! Take a look around and stay in the loop. See Entire Newsletter here

In two weeks time they're going to be dead.

Every single one of them.

Due to total exhaustion.

SAGINAW, MI – When "It's a Wonderful Life" hit the theaters in 1946, audiences didn't immediately take to Frank Capra's tale of a small-town banker's life-changing redemption, calling it "sentimental."
