The Dearborn Community Arts Council is pleased to inform you that based on an initial nomination from Berni Herm, Stout Theater Company has been selected by the committee as the recipient of the Arts Organization Award for the prestigious Mayor’s Arts Awards for 2018. This Award is given annually to an arts organization recognized for outstanding contributions to the advancement and support of the arts in the greater Dearborn community – and has shown the importance of working hard in the arts while leading by example.

The Mayor’s Arts Awards for 201, presented by the Dearborn Community Arts Council will be held Tuesday, April 10, 2018, at 7:00 PM in Studio A at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center with an Afterglow / Reception to follow across the lobby inside the Padzieski Art Gallery.

For the past four years, the Stout Theater Company has provided entertainment and enrichment activities for Dearborn youth through our productions. Founded in 2014, the Stout Theater Company is a student-led enterprise that provides opportunities for personal expression, growth, and creativity through our production of plays at community events. Stout Theater Company (STC), began at Stout Middle School but has since expanded and now includes youth in surrounding elementary and middle schools to stage musical and dramatic productions.
