Dramatic Friction creates great stories
WHAT WE DO
Who We Are
The Friction Theatre is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to producing new and unique theatre in Midland, Michigan.
OUR GOALS AND MISSION
By establishing a professional theatre company in Midland we plan to not only provide paid, professional experiences for local actors and technicians, but also mount productions that showcase the many unique locations in our city.
We plan to partner with local businesses in ways that will grow community engagement while bringing more arts and entertainment to our town. A rising tide lifts all boats, and we want to help bring attention to other Midland businesses as we grow our own.
Many people view theatre as exclusive, either in its content or the cost of ticket prices. We're dedicated to mounting productions that will challenge people's ideas of what theatre can be, how it can be done, where it can be done, and who it can be for, at affordable prices. We're going to make theatre fans out of people who normally never would have walked into a play or musical.
