The Plaza Theatre has announced its lineup of shows for the 2020-21 season. The official theme of the season is, “Thrills and Chills.” While the lineup is set, show dates are tentative due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to reduce expenses and unforeseen circumstances, there will not be a printed season brochure this year.
The season lineup is as follows:
