Our community-based programs take you behind the scenes to provide a deeper understanding of the art of making theatre. This rare opportunity gives you the chance to meet actors, directors, and designers at intimate, conversation-driven events.
With this hugely popular series, we invite you to join us in the Paul Green Theatre for some delicious hors d’oeuvres and the chance to learn about a production in process. Meet the director and get a behind-the-scenes look at the design and vision for our shows.
These events are free to the public.

Through partnerships with area nonprofits, community organizations, local schools and libraries, PlayMakers’ Mobile Shakespeare presents professional productions of Shakespeare’s plays with stripped down and abbreviated staging geared toward making them more accessible and vital to new audiences. Each production has been cut to ninety minutes or less, and features members of the PlayMakers company from the Center for Dramatic Art at UNC-Chapel Hill, and is presented by PlayMakers at no charge for tickets.
In the Classroom
PlayMakers Repertory Company sends professional Teaching Artists into your classroom to prepare students to attend our shows and/or explore curriculum based themes. We work with you to develop a residency tailor-made to fit your needs. The teaching artists can help contextualize the world of the play for your students and also offer interactive lessons that seamlessly support your curriculum. We build residencies that are focused on either a particular show in our season or based solely on your curriculum needs. From mathematics to science to literature to world history and beyond, we will work with you to develop a specific workshop based upon your needs. The cost of a teaching artist is $75 per hour.
