GET TO KNOW US
Playmakers, Inc., was organized in 1955 as a non-profit, voluntary amateur theater and has functioned as an organization for the promotion of dramatic interests in the Covington area. Playmakers gives an opportunity to all interested persons to participate in live theater. Playmakers has continued to produce four or more plays each year since its beginnings despite many setback including the loss of the old theater by fire in 1976.
In early 2018, Playmakers, Inc. Community Theater in Covington introduced an exciting addition to the Northshore theatre scene: Playmakers’ Readers Theatre. With a mission to bring live theatre to the community in places it may not have reached before, Readers Theatre will perform one act plays, staged readings and other theatrical endeavors throughout the community in a variety of venues.
Playmakers Theater underwent a building renovation in 2015-2016 season due to the 500 year flood on March 11, 2016.
