OCTOBER 8 - 10 I Elgood Theatre - OPENING TONIGHT!
Flint Rep associate artist Janet Haley plays Winnie in Samuel Beckett’s darkly comic masterpiece Happy Days.

Stuck in a mound of earth from the waist down, Winnie’s humor and boundless optimism guard her from the harsh glare of the inevitable.

Beckett’s surreal play is an absurdly funny and unforgettable theatrical event.

Message from the executive office
The Flint Repertory Theatre opens its season this evening with Flint’s own Janet Haley playing Winnie. If you haven’t had the opportunity to see a Flint Rep production, I encourage you to see a show this week-end and be amazed by the quality of this young and exciting theatre.
As you can see above, there is a lot happening and a lot of fun planned this fall. I hope to see you at an event or show. And it’s not too early to think ahead to the holidays and plan a family outing, or a night out with co-workers. There’s something for everyone!
I hope you enjoy a safe and restorative week-end!
