Theater Arts

Why include the Theater Arts tent at the Belle Isle Art Fair?  Perhaps because there are so many visual artists (as well as many others) that work on theater?  Or maybe we just love a good play.

This year we have invited some of Detroit's favorite theater groups to come out and join us. You can expect to see short scenes from a variety of shows.  It's also a opportunity to meet and hear about the various groups and to purchase their tickets.
