Basement Arts is a student theater organization housed within and subsidized by the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance’s Department of Theatre and Drama. The organization exists to create, develop, and produce high-quality theatre by allowing students from across campus to execute all aspects of the theatrical production process. Basement Arts offers all performances free of charge to the University of Michigan and greater Ann Arbor communities.

Basement Arts produces 4-7 shows a semester that are directed, designed, performed, and managed by students.  Basement Arts additionally presents one-night-only performance events in our LateNight Series.  All opportunities are available to any University of Michigan student.  Basement Arts is committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all persons and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, religion, height, weight, or veteran status in its membership or activities unless permitted by university policy for gender specific organizations. Upon joining the organization, all members agree not to undermine the purpose or mission of Basement Arts.
