This January, Playmakers, Inc. Community Theater in Covington introduces 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.
The Readers Theatre will publish its official season in February, but launched its inaugural reading on January 21, 2018 with a staged reading of Ladies in Waiting: The Judgement of Henry VIII by James Cougar Canfield. Click here for more information on "Ladies in Waiting".
