Many have asked and here is our answer to how you can help us get through this shutdown. Fortunately, we don't have debt, which makes the monthly amount we need to raise just $6,000. Thanks to Patreon, we have "created" an innovative way that you can help us make it through! Please like and share widely, and become a Patron if you can!

Let's face it, finding high-quality entertainment is hard. With busy schedules, you can't afford to spend your time (your most valuable resource) sitting through a bad play. We get that.


Our team of new play experts has over 75 years of experience selecting new plays. You can count on the hottest new scripts in the country, produced in a comfortable, convenient venue in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor.


What's more, Theatre NOVA is already drawing raves from critics like:

"Great things are happening at Theatre NOVA... every show has been a winner... What they do are intelligent, entertaining, and thought-provoking shows. The atmosphere of the theatre itself is rustic and authentic, the seating intimate and comfortable. If you have not yet made it to a show at The Yellow Barn, by all means, find an open date on your calendar and pencil one in." - Dan Skora, It's All Theatre


Finding high-quality entertainment that is also affordable is hard as well. For many of us, dropping $100 on theatre tickets and dinner (plus babysitting!) just isn't possible. We get that too.


That's why tickets for our shows are just $22 each and Theatre NOVA continues its commitment to making theatre accessible by offering pay-what-you-can tickets for every show for those who need them.


Critics and audiences alike are raving about Theatre Nova. If you've been craving high-quality theatre in Ann Arbor, you should come see what all the fuss is about. If there was a way to give you a "time back guarantee" we would. But we don't think you'll need it.
