Parallel 45 Theatre

www.parallel45.org Traverse City

Parallel 45 is a non-profit theater that facilitates the collaboration of nationally-recognized artists in order to create high-quality productions for the Northwest Michigan community.

We believe that by engaging in public and collective acts of imagination, the theater helps us to remember where we have been, understand where we are today, and examine where we are going. By producing a repertory of innovative new works, reinvented classics, and imaginative adaptations, Parallel 45 seeks to entertain, encourage critical thought, and inspire. While many of our titles are known to our audience, we are dedicated to telling these stories through new lenses. We refer to them as “Familiar Stories for the Adventurous Mind.”
