Parallel 45 Theatre Festival

Grand Traverse County Civic Center
1213 W. Civic Center Drive,
Traverse City, MI 49686

Last summer, alongside theatres around the world, our stage went dark. This year, thanks to our community’s generous support and dedication to the arts, we will return to the stage.

This summer, we are excited to once again harness the power of live performance to tell essential stories, assembling diverse professional artists to produce world-class theatre right in our backyard. Our dedicated team is taking expert knowledge from those at the forefront of re-opening our nation’s theatres, and putting it into practice right here in Traverse City, reconfiguring our outdoor venue in Civic Center Park to allow for COVID-safe socially-distanced seating.

Experience the joy of going out again--safely! Take in world-class theatre from a comfortable outdoor distance, seated in a pod with only your people. You provide the enthusiasm for an exciting night of entertainment, we will provide the rest, including a chair! Spend the night on our lawn, relish a pre-ordered picnic and a glass of wine as the sun sets on another beautiful northern Michigan day-- all while maintaining a safe social-distance from the performers and other audience members.
