Guest Artist SponsorshipsEach year, PlayMakers brings in dozens of nationally recognized guest artists to act, direct, and design on our stage, promoting our status as one of the great professional theatres in the country and as a leading professional laboratory for the Arts. These artists work directly on our productions, side by side with our students and often guest lecture in classes. This crucial support gives PlayMakers the flexibility to hire artists from across the world to elevate our work and share their vast professional experience in the field with students in the Department of Dramatic Art and across the College of Arts and Sciences.
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.
