Hamtown Races
Planet Ant Theatre is set to shine the spotlight on the colorful and diverse characters of Hamtramck in Hamtown Races opening Friday, September 21 and continuing through Saturday, October 13.

Planet Ant is excited to open its 2012-2013 season with Hamtown Races, a new work from Margaret Edwartowski (Harper Woods), author of last season's Snowbound and The Do Over. This original production will take audiences to the Al Ameer Cafe, a family business owned and operated by  Lebanese immigrants that plays host to a colorful and diverse collection  of characters, each representative of the varied and shifting cultures  in Hamtramck.  

Hamtown Races pays  homage to this one of a kind city and features Stephen Blackwell (Berkley), Patrick O'Connor Cronin (Bloomfield Hills), Mike Eshaq (Dearborn), Britta Peele (Harrison Township), Amy Probst (Detroit) and Rico Bruce Wade (Lansing), directed by Mike McGettigan (Dearborn) assisted by Michael Hovitch (Ferndale) with stage manager Genevieve Jona (Farmington Hills).  

Hamtown Races will appear at 8:00pm Friday and Saturday evenings and at 2:00pm Sunday, September 30 and October 7. Performances run September 21 through October 13.
