PlayMakers Gala

***UPDATE*** (March 17, 5:00pm): After much careful consideration regarding the coronavirus pandemic, PlayMakers Repertory Company is suspending all public performances and events for the remainder of our 19/20 Season. This includes the PlayMakers Backstage Pass Gala, originally scheduled for April 27, 2020. If you have already purchased tickets for this year’s Gala, someone from our Development team will be in touch with you soon.

Explore every corner of our facility, from the scene shop to the paint deck to the lobby, see how a show is put together, and mingle with amazing PlayMakers artists, all with a cocktail in hand!

After many years at the Carolina Inn and more recently at the Joan H. Gillings Center for Dramatic Art, we’re thrilled to announce a brand-new “backstage pass” format for this year’s gala, giving guests a chance to experience PlayMakers from a whole new perspective.

This year’s all new event will embrace our theatricality and what makes us a unique space in Chapel Hill. This intimate affair starts backstage in our scene shop with cocktails from TOPO Distillery, curated wines from Glasshalfull, and a unique culinary experience from AC Events by Ashley Christensen. We’ll move to the Paul Green Theatre for lively banter and inspirational performances and the evening will finish with more drinks and bites in the Paul Green Lobby and the chance to win some exciting prizes!
