Are you looking for some good theater in Grand Rapids?

You don't have far to go.  Civic, Spectrum, Jewish and Heritage Theaters all produce excellent entertainment.

But, hey...let's not forget Dog Story Theater.  They're downtown at 7 Jefferson, and showcase some excellent theater as well.

Dog Story has seen many different acts grace its stage. Everything from original plays like Moose Mating, Sleepy Hollow and FXIII the Musical to staged productions like Boston Marriage, True West and Tuna Christmas. They’ve worked with great companies like "Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company, PowerDiva Productions, Playbox Media Group and Grand Rapids Dance Project. They’ve worked with the Atomic Hoop Troupe and hosted the debut of the Rita & Velvet Dan movie. They’ve featured live music like The Interruptions and even hosted the Creolization live CD recording.  Comedy? Dog Story has been the home to shows like Old Lady Monday, The Rita & Velvet Dan Show and is currently the home of The Pop Scholars. Every Monday is comedy night featuring artists from River City Improv, Second City, Improv Olympic and more.

In a nutshell… Dog Story Theater is truly a place that has something for everyone.

Next Friday and Saturday, April 6 and 7, "Pop Scholars Improv" will be at Dog Story Theater.

Audience members should come ready to be inspired in the moment to shout out suggestions and might even be asked to volunteer.  Pop Scholars is a fresh and different comedy experience.

Dog Store Theater is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. It is a VENUE and does not produce shows. Their mission is simply to provide an affordable, flexible performance space for performers, directors, writers, dancers, comedians, poets, filmmakers and musicians to showcase their work!

Theater definitely works in Grand Rapids!
