2019 Season Announcement
Arkansas Repertory Theatre officials will formally announce a 2019 Mainstage season at a special reveal party scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on November 13 at the theatre in downtown Little Rock.
“We are thrilled to confirm that The Rep is returning with a revitalized commitment to providing Arkansas audiences with the same high quality professional theatre that they have come to expect from us,” said Ruth Shepherd, Rep board chair and interim leadership team member.
“Attendees will not only be the first to learn what shows will be produced as part of our much-anticipated Mainstage 2019 season, but they will also be able to purchase their season tickets that very night,” said Shepherd, who noted that renewing subscribers will be able to secure their assigned seats from previous seasons.
Interim General Manager and board member, Bill Rector, said, “We anticipate high attendance for the reveal based on the amount of community support and interest the theatre has received since it announced earlier this year that the theatre would be forced to cut its 2018 season short and immediately suspend productions due to critical cash flow issues.”
“Several local restaurants that support the theatre will donate food and beverages for the party,” said Rector. “They seem to be almost as keen as we are for The Rep to resume productions since the theatre traditionally brings thousands of patrons to downtown Little Rock.”
Admission for the celebratory reveal party is free, although reservations are required by emailing BoxOffice@TheRep.org.
