UNC student Elizabeth Holmes fell in love with theatre last season at PlayMakers. Turns out, there are six reasons this Tar Heel loves theatre.
Jeffrey Meanza, PlayMakers’ beloved former Associate Artistic Director, is back this fall to direct the first show of the season! We sat down with him to catch up.
With two shows on the horizon, longtime beloved company member Kathryn Hunter-Williams has a busy fall ahead of her. But that’s just how she likes it!
Four summers ago, Carolina Friends School student Lili Whittier auditioned for her first Summer Youth Conservatory Theatre Intensive. It turned out to be a life-changing choice.
Kira Cornell is not exactly new to PlayMakers. “I’ve been coming here since I was three,” she said. After all, her dad is PlayMakers’ resident acting company member Jeffrey Blair Cornell.
This summer, as our SYC students prepare for Bye Bye Birdie, we’ve invited three of these students to chronicle their experience, beginning one week into rehearsals.
New York-based director Michael Perlman makes his PlayMakers debut, directing the Summer Youth Conservatory Production of Bye Bye Birdie.
At first glance, Tyne Rafaeli might not be the sort of person you’d expect to direct a colorful musical classic like My Fair Lady. But looks can be deceiving.
My Fair Lady has arrived PlayMakers, but if you’re expecting a carbon copy of the 1964 film with Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison, you may want to look a little closer.
How will director Tyne Rafaeli and her creative team work to make the production new, yet also appealing to audiences who first fell in love with the movie version?
