Off Plaza


Off Plaza is a play series created by Paris Community Theatre to allow for local theatre artists to experiment with works that deal with contemporary social issues and allows for a more non traditional expression of those social issues. This program occasionally seeks out alternative performance spaces fitting of the shows being produced.

Upcoming Off-Plaza Show

By William Shakespeare

Dates May 25 – 27, 2017

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare between 1590 and 1597. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (the mechanicals) who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set.
