A dynamic message from Theater Ninjas


We have some big news.

We are proud to announce the creation of the Theater Ninjas Headquarters. YES. The “Food Truck of Cleveland theater” is putting down roots in the Detroit Shoreway/Gordon Square Arts District. A storefront in the historic Courtland Building at West 54th and Detroit Avenue will become the new base of operations for Theater Ninjas, acting as a hub for rehearsals, performances, classes in movement and devised theater creation, audio and video recording, and Company administration including box office.

The new space is at 5403 Detroit Ave, next door to CityBreaks CLE, The Black Market, and Zekes Barber Shop

Having a headquarters is a complete sea change for Theater Ninjas and for the artists with whom we collaborate. We’ve spent the last ten years as nomads, basically operating the company out of a messenger bag. A home base will make creation of new work much easier, and while we will continue to seek out non-traditional venues for larger productions, we now have an central hub for our work.

So help us celebrate! We’re inaugurating the new space March 18 with an informal open house and another installment of Positive Reinforcements, a showcase of short-form performance that features new and developing material from local artists. You’ll be able to check out the new space, vote on designs for the remodel, and celebrate this huge milestone with us.

Big thanks to Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization for helping to facilitate the new space, and to The George Gund Foundation.
