Thanks to all who attended and to all who helped make the evening special.

Our Patrons Have Spoken: You Want More Comfortable Seats

We couldn’t agree more. Our seating has served us well these five years. But we’re hoping to replace our current seating with more comfortable seating very soon. In an effort to make this happen, PlazaCo is starting an annual fundraising event. The annual CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR is playing at the Cleburne Conference center ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Featuring an old-fashioned Victorian evening of Christmas celebration.

Guests will receive a special PlazaCo Christmas tree ornament as well as a chance to win a genuine double eagle gold coin. They will also enjoy food, Plaza’s holiday variety show and even Santa Clause!

The holiday variety show will feature many of Plaza’s regular actors and actresses as they perform many favorites of the season.All proceeds raised from the event will be used to provide new seating for Plaza Theatre Company’s patrons.

Tickets for this special fundraising event are $50 a person and are available right now by calling 817-202-0600 or by visiting www.plaza-theatre.com

Please consider joining us for this special evening of holiday entertainment. We know once we’ve gotten the new theatre seating that you’ll be glad you did.
See ya December 4th!

Introducing PlazaCo’s new late night series: “Plaza AFTER Hours”

Plaza Theatre Company is pleased to announce a new late night series that will be added to our weekly lineup: PLAZA AFTER HOURS.

This series will tackle a little more offbeat material than Plaza’s regular season of shows. These plays will be original, fresh, unique and most of all – FUN! Of course we’re still Plaza, so every you see will be something the whole family will love. But the “After Hours” series will offer an opportunity to get a taste of something a little unconventional.

As you can tell by the title of the series, these shows will take place later in the evening than our regular productions. PLAZA AFTER HOURS will play Friday nights AFTER our regular 7:30 show. These shows will start at 10:30 and last approximately an hour and a half. So if you looking for something completely original on a late Friday night, we are have got the shows for you!

Our first production in the PLAZA AFTER HOURS series is one we’ve been aching to produce ever since we opened PlazaCo. We’ve just never felt it fit in with our regular seasonal approach. But with this new series it is a perfect fit. Opening on July 13th and playing through August 31st (8 Fridays), Plaza Theatre Company will be presenting THE COMPLEAT WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE – (ABRIDGED).

Now we know you may not have heard of this show, so you might have to trust us when we will you it side-splittingly FUNNY. Imagine all of Shakespeare’s plays acted out by 3 guys in the space of 90 minutes. Join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

Warning! This show is a high-speed roller-coaster type condensation of all of Shakespeare’s plays, and is not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder problems, inner-ear disorders and/or people inclined to motion sickness. PlazaCo cannot be held responsible for expectant mothers!

Visit the Plaza Facebook page here to see a video of the hilarity surely to ensue at this production: https://www.facebook.com/PlazaCo

The show will feature JaceSon Barrus, Luke Hunt and Aaron Siler as they act out every show in Shakespeare’s canon. Believe us, this ain’t your father’s Shakespeare. We promise if you give this a try you’ll have a blast.

Give us a call at 817-202-0600 to reserve your seats. Or visit http://www.plaza-theatre.com for online reservations.
