A prominent theater in Hamtramck, the Planet Ant Theatre is located just off the Interstate 75, near the city center. Spread over three floors, the purple-colored brick structure looks like someone's home was turned into a venue, and once you step inside, home-like warmth is what you will find. Perhaps the theater calls itself, 'Planet Ant' as a reference to the solidarity of the usually misunderstood insects and how they all work for their close-knit community together. This theater also strives to keep the community together by presenting local artists, comedians, playwrights and actors on its stage. To know more about upcoming shows, do see the website.
