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.
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.
