The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Pauper Players is the premier musical theatre company on UNC’s campus. Founded in 1989, Pauper Players seeks to create avenues for Carolina students to organize and perform full-scale musical productions. UNC Pauper Players got its name from the abundant conviction that despite the limited resources with which the company’s founders started, students are capable of putting on quality musical productions.

Now celebrating our 28th season, Pauper has grown to be a prominent arts organization on UNC’s campus, annually producing at least two full-scale musicals and a Broadway Revue show. Still unlimited in our conviction, Pauper is dedicated to artistic growth and social engagement, and has recently begun a Pauper Performance Troupe, which consists of group of dedicated performers who perform musical theatre numbers for members of the community and at campus event. In Spring of 2017, Pauper was recognized by UNC Student Government for it’s work in and commitment to community outreach.
