Summer Tour

Summer Neighborhood Library Tour


Each Season in June and July, Playmakers tours an original one act play to the libraries of East Baton Rouge and the surrounding parishes. Local professional theatre artists are hired to write, direct, design, and perform the show, which is always based on the national summer reading theme initiated by the Collaborative Summer Library Program. Each year, thanks to funding from our libraries, this program reaches over 1,500 patrons free of charge!

See more information about performances that are open to the public and free of charge below! To bring a Summer Tour performance to your summer camp or program, contact Todd at
