PlayMakers announces 2015-2016 season

A Pulitzer Prize-winner straight from Broadway, the world premiere of a new adaptation of a timeless classic and a tour de force musical by Stephen Sondheim will highlight the six-play 2015-2016 main-stage season from PlayMakers Repertory Company.

The theater will also present three topical, thought-provoking shows in its PRC2 second-stage season. The PRC2 series is a dynamic combination of exciting stories on stage followed by a “second act” of engaging post-show dialogue between the artists, expert panelists and the audience.

PlayMakers is the professional theater company in residence at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. All performances will be presented in UNC-Chapel Hill’s Center for Dramatic Art on Country Club Road. Main-stage productions will be in the Paul Green Theatre; PRC2 shows in the Elizabeth Price Kenan Theatre.

Subscription packages are available for purchase. Renewing subscribers can secure their current seats for the new season through May 1. Call (919) 962-7529 or visit www.playmakersrep.org for information.
