Welcome to the

Arkansas Repertory Theatre.



The social distancing restrictions brought on by the current pandemic have forced The Rep to suspend its regular programming.


At this point, we cannot say exactly when or how we will return, but our Staff and Board are using this period as an opportunity to regroup and build a sustainable plan for the future.  We are fully examining how we can best serve our community, and doing the intensive work of readying our organization to fulfill that mission.



Central Arkansas deserves to have professional theatre, and for 40+ years, The Rep has been providing those exciting, moving, entertaining group experiences that we all miss right now.



With your support, The Rep will eventually emerge from this dark period and we will all gather together again.




Help us make sure our ghost light stays lit.

Right now, when you wander into The Rep’s auditorium you will see a single light shining from center stage.

This simple, unobtrusive light is part of a long-standing theatrical tradition – After a performance has ended and the audience has gone home, the Stage Manager will turn on the ghost light and place it on stage for the night.  The light ensures that when the first performer or crew member returns for the next day’s performance, they will be able to find their way around the dark stage.

While we have hopes for some limited programming during this dark period, The Rep is taking an intentionally conservative approach to its operations for the next several months.  Even still, we need your support to sustain our minimal staff and infrastructure, ensuring that we can indeed return when the time comes.  Your support is an investment in the future of the arts in your community.
