The Tipping Point is that one dramatic moment in an epidemic when everything can change all at once…and we’ve reached it in a BIG way! From operating as a “vagabond” theatre company under the umbrella of the Parks and Recreation department, performing in any empty space we could get our hands on and paying actors with smiles and applause – we opened in 2007 with big changes – tipping point changes! Incorporated as a professional, non-profit 501(c)3 organization in the state of Michigan, Tipping Point Theatre opened its doors as a professional Equity theatre company in our new permanent facility in downtown Northville.
The Plymouth Uptown Players (PUPS) is an experimental theatre group that is made up of elementary and middle school aged children. Each season (Fall and Spring) children are invited to participate in open auditions. All children who audition will receive a part. The program culminates in a play performed on Tipping Point Theatre’s stage. The performances are open to the public.
The program teaches children everything about producing and acting in a play including costumes, sets, and working together as a team with your other cast mates.
