PlayMakers Repertory Company

PlayMakers Repertory Company is the professional theatre in residence at UNC. The artists involved in the yearly productions are professional. Recently, Playmakers has produced classic plays by Shakespeare, Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams as well as contemporary plays from August Wilson, Tony Kushner and a few world premiere productions.

PlayMakers also offers Education and Outreach programs that have served over 100,000 area youth. They bring students to specially produced matinees and send Teaching Artists to schools that do not have quality arts programs. They offer complimentary tickets to people working in certain non-profit service organizations in the community. The theatre is supported by ticket sales, donations and money from the University as well as public funding foundations.
