PlayMakers stages Shakespeare for everyone

PlayMakers Repertory Company has always had a long relationship with bringing the works of William Shakespeare to the University and local communities.

This year, in addition to producing Twelfth Night (pictured at right) as part of their main-stage season, PlayMakers also brought Measure for Measure to the local community through its inaugural Mobile Shakespeare program.

In addition to Mobile Shakespeare, PlayMakers reaches new audiences through the National Endowment for the Arts’ Shakespeare for a New Generation grant. The grant allows the company to send teaching artists to North Carolina schools to talk about the play before bringing the students to a free matinee.
