Work with Us!

Each year we hire a variety of talent, from pre-professional college students to seasoned artists, to lend their skills to our internship program. Our interns are an integral part of the festival’s success, so we are dedicated to making it a part of your success as well! Our internship program offers the perfect opportunity to work with a professional theatre company and gain valuable experience. Interested? Please send us a e-mail to learn more about the opportunities available to you. We look forward to hearing from you!

Best Kept Secret

Some say Water Works is the area’s best kept cultural secret. But the truth is that since 2001 Water Works has presented the biggest and best outdoor professional Shakespeare festival in Michigan. We’re proud to say that we have inspired many other groups to pop up around the state, and we encourage their legacy. Yet we still offer your family the highest quality, affordable cultural experience anywhere. From our friendly atmosphere and first rate performances, to our top-notch education programs, we guarantee you will love your time in the park with us.

Help Us This Year

It’s all close to home in a beautiful park in two perfect midsummer weeks. But we need YOU to help keep the dream alive. Think about it: when you go to Stratford, see a Broadway play or even a touring show downtown, you will easily spend more than double Water Works’ ticket prices. Not to mention all the travel, dining and parking.
We’re asking you to help us make up the difference between what we charge our audience, and what it really takes to do it right.
