November 8–11 and 14–17, 2018

Since 1995, PTD has produced an enormous range of plays.

Our portfolio includes everything from theatrical classics (Long Day’s Journey into Night) to world premieres (Soccer Moms & Reapers). We stage comedies (The Norman Conquests), dramas (A Delicate Balance), mysteries (Mousetrap), farces (Farce of Nature), and genres yet to be categorized. Our seasons have included large-cast shows (Auntie Mame) as well as those for just two actors (’night Mother). 


PTD Productions is connected to the Ypsilanti, Michigan community.

PTD is committed to nurturing the cultural growth of our community by providing live theater, and to encouraging everyone to participate as producers, directors, playwrights, actors, crew, stagehands, front-of-house staff, refreshment sellers, and in myriad additional roles.

Audiences are participants too!

PTD welcomes lifelong theater-lovers and newbies, seniors and students, men and women, townies and out-of-towners, fans and skeptics, and everyone in between. We invite you to experience the range of settings, characters, situations, quirks, worldviews, and emotions that are part of the human condition.
