A Season of Seriously Good Theatre

Seasons of Seriously Good Theatre, theatrical training, artist residencies and internships are what educators and students can expect from the School of the Performing Arts at theREP. Motivated by our mission to create meaningful theatre with an authentic connection to the community we serve, we offer professional productions both at theREP and on tour for schools, acting intensives and summer training for aspiring performers, and opportunities to develop new work led by brilliant playwrights, and the nation’s most acclaimed professional stage actors. Students embark on a voyage of discovery that will deepen their understanding of dramatic literature and the theatrical tradition in every sense. Our classroom or your classroom, we offer programming to fit every need and budget.
