About the Arkansas Repertory Theatre:

 

A fundamental anchor for the quality of life in Central Arkansas, The Rep creates vibrant and engaging theatrical experiences that are accessible for everyone in our community. With our work, The Rep seeks to make lives more full, more interesting, and more joyful. The Rep’s core programming is a year-long season of 5-6 productions, freshly created for our audiences in an intimate, 377-seat theatre in downtown Little Rock.  We tell stories that provide entertainment and escape, that help us process the world around us, and that foster a sense of mutual understanding. Unlike most of an ever-present electronic media, the live experiences of The Rep are distinctly theatrical- immersive and shared by the community in a public space outside of individual homes. As the state’s most established professional theatre since its founding in 1976, we maintain the highest artistic standards, featuring award-winning artists, both local and from across the country, particularly celebrating artists and works with connections to our community.

 

The Rep’s most recent accomplishments were born of significant challenges. Recognizing incremental changes weren’t producing long-term sustainability, The Rep’s Board of Directors suspended productions in April 2018.  The organization’s turnaround process, led by a newly hired Executive Artistic Director, was still in its early stages when the COVID-19 pandemic forced the theatre to once again suspend operations.   With its skeletal staff and Board concluding a significant strategic planning process, The Rep now looks to rebuild its organization with the aim of returning to full operations in early 2022.
