An important contribution to education around the history of Placentia is provided by the Placentia AreaTheatre d'Heritage(PATH) . This group is a non-profit organization established in 1994.
Organizers formed a committee which in turn laid a framework for a theatre troupe. Since 1994 the troupe has presented a living interpretation of significant parts of French and English history of the Placentia Area. Visitors and locals are provided with entertainment that is culturally accurate and makes local people aware of their heritage while assisting in the support of the tourist industry of the area.
The flag-ship event is the Faces of Fort Royal, a play about the early days of the French in Placentia performed during the summer at Castle Hisll National Historic Site. This is supplemented by vingnettes, or short literary sketches and dinner theatre performed at different locations around the town. A recent addition to the playbill is the Spirit Walk. Usually written by the current Artistic Director, these stories can range from things that go bump in the night to a chilling tale of intrigue or a heart warming tale of strength and courage in the face of danger.
