Pauper Players makes the DTH "Year in Review"!

In an article highlighting the growing strengths of UNC's undergraduate student-run theatre, Pauper Players and the recent production of Sweet Charity were featured as being particularly adept at displaying "consistent innovation... and one-a-kind performances [that] have flourished" this year!

SWEET CHARITY -- A Smashing Success!!

Pauper Players' fall production of "Sweet Charity," directed and choreographed by sophomore Michael McWaters, was a fantastic blend of musical climaxes, expert choreography, sweet sentimentality, and hilarious bouts of sass. Pauper Players performed to several sold-out crowds and with the support of a spectacular orchestra and phenomenal team of directors and designers. UNC's The Daily Tarheel boasts: "In what may not be expected from an entirely student-run production, “Sweet Charity” is a thoroughly professional performance that brings a smile and tap of the foot of every audience member.
