LOCAL LAWYER’S GRIDIRON SHOW RETURNS TO THE REP

The Arkansas Repertory Theatre is thrilled to announce that more than 75 lawyers and law professionals will once again take The Rep stage with their production of Gridiron. After a four-year hiatus, the lawyers bring back their biannual musical production spoofing Arkansas people and politics. Its first show will premiere at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13 with a special offering of light bites and complimentary beer and wine. Four shows will follow on Thursday (8 p.m.), Friday (7 p.m. and 9 p.m.) and Saturday (8 p.m.).

“Gridiron is a special thing,” said Dent Gitchell, a 40-year veteran of the show and the show’s historical archivist. “It's not just a hoot to watch, it's an opportunity for lawyers, young and not-so-young - judges, paralegals, and other legal professionals - to get to know each other outside the courtroom, share a common experience, and have a lot of fun.”
