It was July 11th, and the curtain rose on a new, state-of-the-art outdoor theatre in downtown Traverse City! Opening night capped a nearly decade-long journey for Parallel 45 Theatre. What began as a 2010 performance of Our Town has grown into a year-round programming calendar, featuring a summer season with three different shows and 27 performances. Now, their collaboration with Grand Traverse County Parks and Recreation has made the creation of a permanent summer home possible.
