Don’t miss Parallel 45 Theatre’s summer kickoff celebration with a fundraiser supporting bold, thought-provoking, and wildly fun year-round programming in Northern Michigan.

Spend a warm Traverse City summer evening on the lawn this June with our Summer Company of artists for appetizers, drinks, and revelry. These creatives, hailing from all corners of the country, will be in their first week of rehearsals and ready to share the magic that’s yet to come in July.

After mingling and toasting the season, enjoy a one-night-only performance of Hamlet with Bubbles, an exclusive piece devised specifically for you by our Resident Company of local actors, directors, and artists.

The evening culminates with a live auction featuring one-of-a-kind experiences curated for our theatre-loving friends.
