Founded in 1976, the Arkansas Repertory Theatre is the state’s largest non-profit resident theatre company. A member of the League of Resident Theatres (LORT D), The Rep has produced more than 350 productions including 45 world premieres on its 377-seat theatre located in its historic building in downtown Little Rock.

John Miller-Stephany, Producing Artistic Director, leads a resident staff of designers, technicians and administrators in the creation of six productions for an annual audience in excess of 70,000.  The Rep employs guest artists from across the country to produce works - created, rehearsed and built in downtown Little Rock - ranging from contemporary comedies and dramas to world premieres to the classics of dramatic literature.

The Rep relies on season subscriptions, special events, foundation support, corporate and individual donations and funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and Arkansas Arts Council.  The Rep’s auxiliary group, Friends of The Rep, contributes time and energy to support the theatre through ushering, fundraisers, and organized events. The Rep receives local community support from more than 400 volunteers who usher for The Rep’s productions.

Frequently hosting civic groups such as the Little Rock Chamber of Commerce Leadership Institute and non-profits such as Urban Financial Developers, The Rep also serves as a co-producer on the Arkansas Bar Association’s Gridiron and frequently engages in co-productions with other regional theatres and local organizations such as the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and the Wildwood Park for the Performing Arts.

The Rep brings Tony Award-winners and other nationally recognized artists to its stages, and is locally recognized as the Best Live Theatre and the Best Performing Arts Organization by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and Arkansas Times.
