Mobile Shakespeare taking the bard out to a new generation

PlayMakers presents professional-quality, bare bones productions of Shakespeare plays and more, cut to ninety minutes or less. They connect with new audiences in their own spaces, truly meeting them where they live.

By revealing theatre to be accessible, relevant, vital, and just plain fun— Mobile Shakespeare+ creates a new audience for timeless plays.

Here's a peek at the production of Midsummer Night's Dream at a local NC school.
