Flint Rep presents a new, reimagined season for Summer 2021: FLINT REP OUTSIDE! During the pandemic, we're looking for ways to translate our work into new mediums and bring theatre directly to the community. This exciting and ambitious new programming is all outside of the box and our building.
This summer, Flint Repertory Theatre is partnering with the Flint Public Art Project to present FLINT MURAL PLAYS (June 5 – August 31). Flint Rep has commissioned 25 new micro audio plays from some of the most exciting playwrights in the country, each play corresponding with a different mural located around the city of Flint.
The 25 short audio plays will be available for audience members to listen to for free on the PixelStix mobile app on their phone or listening device as they visit the murals around Flint from June 5 through August 31 as well as online at FlintRep.org. The project will also feature free outdoor community events all around the city with guided walking/trolley tours and live performances.
Flint Rep Outside will also present Jason Robert Brown's SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD (July 23-25) performed outside on the roof of Flint Repertory theatre.
With a soaring, vibrant score that blends pop, gospel and jazz, SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD transports the audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to the ledge of a Fifth Avenue high-rise. This thrilling theatrical song cycle examines life, love, and the choices ordinary people make when faced with extraordinary moments. Singers will perform on the roof of the theatre while the audience watches from the courtyard below.
