Playmakers Theater hosts “A Chorus Line” this weekend with Friday, Saturday and Sunday seatings. The production will also be available for live streaming on Friday and Saturday nights, provided by Pop Up Productions.
THE STORY: A CHORUS LINE is a stunning concept musical capturing the spirit and tension of a Broadway chorus audition. Exploring the inner lives and poignant ambitions of professional Broadway gypsies, the show features one powerhouse number after another. Memorable musical numbers include “What I Did for Love, “One,” “I Can Do That,” “At the Ballet,” “The Music and the Mirror,” and “I Hope I Get It.” A brilliantly complex fusion of song, dance, and compellingly authentic drama, A CHORUS LINE was instantly recognized as a classic.

Playmakers Go Fund Me – Save Our Stage
Since 1955, Playmakers Theatre of Covington, Louisiana, has provided Southeast Louisiana and especially Covington with live theatre productions. The flood in March 2016 wiped out our resources and we have fought hard to continue. Now, with COVID-19 and the challenges it brings, we are reaching out to our beloved community to help us reach our goal. We want nothing more than to continue providing live theatre to our audience. But we need your help! Playmakers needs an income of about $3,000.00 per month to meet all basic needs. This does not include the cost of rights, scripts, costumes, sets and the many other expenses that come with producing a quality show. Because of the virus, we had to cancel two of our mainstage shows and shut our doors for the safety and well being of our audiences and volunteers.
2020 has been a year of many losses for us. We are striving to keep our doors open, as are many businesses in our nation. We hope that our community will help us keep going. A donation of any size will make a difference!
