The mission of The Rep’s Education Department is to engage, inspire and empower Arkansas students of all ages through the involvement in theatre arts. Using our resources as a professional theatre company, we are dedicated to applying theatre as a tool to enhance teacher practice and deepen student learning in Arkansas schools. Our mission is manifested through a series of new programs, including student matinees, master classes and workshops, year-round classes, summer programming, pop-up special guest artists, school residencies, and more.

CLASSES AND CAMPS

From semester courses, to day/week-long camps, to one-time special guest artist workshops, The Rep offers a wide variety of training programs to students of ALL ages.  Unless otherwise noted, no auditions are required for any class/camp.  Need-based scholarships are available upon application.

STUDENT MATINEES

The Rep’s Student Matinee Program allows school children from across the state to see performances each season for as little as $8 a seat. From Mary Poppins to Macbeth, the opportunity to experience live theatre enhances students’ literary knowledge, empathy for others, and critical thinking skills. Each show is accompanied by a study guide fulfilling Arkansas Curriculum Framework Standards, and talkbacks with the cast are available after each performance.
