Parallel 45 Theatre Festival

Every summer, Parallel 45 produces a festival of plays in the relaxed setting of the Civic Center Park in Traverse City. Artists from across the country and around the world convene on P45’s new, state-of-the-art stage to perform adventurous, boundary-pushing musicals, plays, and devised works for all ages–rotating daily. Since 2010, Parallel 45 Theatre has brought more than 150 artists — from as far away as Berlin and as close as Traverse City—to create groundbreaking shows for our community. For ten seasons, we have offered the kind of adventurous professional work you might see in New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles—right here in northwest Michigan. During the shoulder seasons, Parallel 45 operates a theatre education program and produces a free-to-the-public contemporary play reading series.
