Technology and InnovationIn order to operate at our highest level, PlayMakers relies heavily on advanced technology both on and off stage each season, ranging from state-of-the-art video projectors to current FCC compliant communications systems to our industry-leading customer relations database, Tessitura. These tools require annual maintenance and training and often incur unexpected expenses for repair and upgrades. Funding for these and other on-going projects keeps us at the forefront of the latest industry trends and provides our students with real life experience with top tools in our industry.
PlayMakers Community Access FundOne of PlayMakers’ core values is to ensure that our entire community has access to the highest level of professional theatre and live Arts programming in the Triangle. In our efforts to encourage a culture of theatre-going across campus and throughout our community, we offer UNC students $10 tickets to all PlayMakers productions, discounts to UNC faculty and staff, and host at least one “Community Night” for each production where all seats are $15 (compared to an average full-price adult mainstage ticket price of $40). Support towards these initiatives allows us to guarantee these programs each year, reaching more members of our community and spreading good will throughout.
