The New Theatre Project has moved into a new performance space.

Having previously presented shows at Pot & Box at 220 Felch St., TNTP will now be moving into their own venue, in the same building, in Unit 5. The space will house the Project beginning with the next show, "The Everyman Project," and into Season 2: Revelation.

TNTP also announces a change in the performance schedule and artistic staff of its upcoming production of "The Everyman Project." The Project, based on the medieval text "Everyman" by Anonymous, uses this classical text to inspire a wholly contemporary performance musing on the company’s reaction to the question: What are the things, both great and small, that you want to accomplish in your lifetime?

"The Everyman Project" will now be written in a collaborative adaptation by playwright-in-residence Jason Sebacher, under the direction of TNTP associate artistic director Ben Stange and featuring the New Ensemble members Luna Alexander, Ben Berg, Andy England, Analea Lessenberry, and Elise Randall.

The show will have previews Tuesday, April 26 through Thursday, April 28 at 7 p.m. "Everyman" officially opens on Friday, April 29, and plays on Friday and Saturday nights at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.,  and Sundays at 7 p.m., through Sunday, May 15.

Additionally, TNTP announced a change to its summer lineup. Opening on Friday, July 8 will be "Posing," by Sebacher, featuring an opening act of "The Florentine Tragedy (After Oscar Wilde)" adapted, also by Sebacher, from an unfinished play fragment by Oscar Wilde. "Posing" exposes the tensions between sex and love, and the consequences of staying young forever. The show will be under the direction of TNTP artistic director Keith Paul Medelis and will feature Evan Mann and Stange. "The Florentine Tragedy" will be directed by Frannie Shepherd-Bates and will feature Mann and Stange. The plays will be performed on Friday and Saturday nights at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., and Sundays at 7 p.m., from July 8-23, with pay-what-you-can preview performances on Tuesday, July 5 through Thursday, July 7.

Tickets are $15 and $10 for students/seniors/industry. Reservations can be made by calling or texting (734) 645-9776 or emailing
