Located in Downtown Walled Lake, Michigan, The Jewish Ensemble Theatre (JET) is one of the longest running professional, Equity theatres in the state. Now entering its 31st season, JET provides main stage productions in its immersive theatre for adult audiences from spring until late fall.

In addition to professional live theatre, JET's Dorfman Family Foundation Youth Theatre tours area schools each year with four, anti-bullying shows for kindergarten through 12th grade audiences. To date, over 800,000 students have taken part in these programs. JET also is proud to partner with the Detroit Institute of Arts each year to produce The Diary of Anne Frank, which is now in its 25th year.  In 2020, JET will launch its national tour of this production with student matinees in Phoenix, Arizona. No other theatre in the world has produced The Diary of Anne Frank more than JET.

The Jewish Ensemble Theatre was established in 1989 to produce theatre of the highest professional standards and to provide a stage for the exploration of ideas that confront issues of humanity and community from a Jewish perspective. The Jewish Ensemble Theatre serves as a force for Jewish continuity, a platform for new voices, and a bridge of understanding to the general community.

Since its inception, The Jewish Ensemble Theatre has used its stage to explore and confront issues of humanity. As a theatre of social conscience, we have stood--and will always stand--for inclusion, fairness, justice, and most importantly, equality.


Bigotry, racism, intolerance, discrimination and prejudice in society is intolerable, which is why JET has worked for 31 years to educate our youth and engage our audiences in these vital issues. JET will continue to honor its guiding principles in this regard.
