This is not your typical summer at The Rep!
The Rep Outdoors experience will be a little different than a typical night at The Rep. To help plan your visit, please review the following FAQs.
Where will the performances be and where should I park?
Due to the projected heat index for July 28th through Aug 1st, the remaining performances of Marie & Rosetta will be performed indoors in The Rep’s auditorium. Primating will be performed at the Civitan Pavilion in the Little Rock Zoo. The Fantasticks in Concert will also be presented outdoors, on the grounds of Murray Park.
Primating: Rep guests for Primating are asked to park and enter through the main entrance as you typically would while visiting the zoo. Once inside, our ushers will direct you to “The Civitan Pavillion”.
Is there reserved seating?
To more easily accommodate social distancing, all tickets are general admission and seating location will be not determined until you arrive for the performance.
What will the Arkansas Rep be doing to protect audiences, staff, and actors from the COVID-19 virus?
At The Rep, a safe, enjoyable experience for all patrons, artists, and staff is our number one priority. We will be following and enforcing all CDC and local public health guidelines. Both summer productions and the outdoor concert will be presented in limited capacity, open-air outdoor venues. Additionally, each family/ticketed group will be socially distanced and The Rep will be working with local contact tracers to ensure that, should any patron later test positive for COVID-19, those who may have been exposed will be notified.
Will I have to wear a mask?
In conjunction with this week’s updates to CDC guidance, we will now be requiring masks for all patrons inside the theatre, regardless of vaccination status. This policy is only in effect for this week’s performances of Marie & Rosetta and will be revisited for future performances.
How will I receive my tickets?
There will be no physical tickets this summer. When you arrive at the performance locations, you will check-in at the box office station and then be directed to the seating area.
Can I purchase tickets when I arrive?
No. Tickets must be purchased in advance online at www.TheRep.org, by calling our box office at (501) 378-0405, or by visiting our box office in person at 601 Main Street, Little Rock, AR.
What are the refund/cancelation policies for the “Rep Outdoors” productions?
- All sales are final – there are no refunds.
- There are no exchange fees – if you cannot make it to your show, you can exchange for another performance free of charge, but you MUST call 24 hours in advance.
- There will be a waitlist – if your first choice is sold out, you may call the box office or email [email protected] to get onto the waitlist.
- If you cannot make it to your performance, please let the box office know as soon as possible so patrons on the waitlist can attend the performance.
What about inclement weather?
Rain or shine, the show will go on — within reason. The outdoor performance venues for Marie & Rosetta and Primating will be open-air, but covered. Should severe weather force us to cancel the performance, ticket-holders will be offered the chance to receive a refund or reschedule their performance, pending availability. The Fantasticks in Concert will not be in a covered venue. A potential rain date will be determined later.
Will the outdoor venues be accessible for patrons with wheelchairs or walkers?
Yes! Providing accessible theatre is important to us. The entire “Rep Outdoors” experience will be wheelchair and walker accessible. Parking lots won’t be far from the performance venues, paths are paved, and wheelchair-friendly restrooms will be available.
What about patrons with hearing impairments or Deaf patrons?
Even with social distancing, the limited seating capacities of the performance spaces will provide an intimate theatre experience. All sound will be amplified, but there will be no additional assisted listening devices available. For Deaf patrons or patrons who rely on ASL interpreters, The Rep will be providing an ASL interpreter to one performance evening per production. Those dates are provided below.
Marie & Rosetta – ASL interpreted performance – Thursday, July 22
Primating – ASL interpreted performance – Thursday, August 19
The Fantasticks in Concert on October 3 will be ASL interpreted
Are there any discounts for senior citizens, military personnel, or students? What about Pay What You Can night?
All patrons can save $10 by purchasing a 2-Show Summer Package. Due to the very limited capacities of the performance spaces, there are no additional ticket discounts, nor Pay What You Can evenings, for either summer production. The Fantasticks in Concert will be a totally free-to-the-public performance.
What should I wear?
Your “Rep Outdoors” experience will be more casual than attending most performances in our auditorium. Arkansas summers can be hot – feel free to dress comfortably. We just want you to enjoy the show! The Rep is prepared for emergency health situations. An air-conditioned building and water will be available in the event of overheating.
Will concessions be available?
We will not be offering full concessions at MARIE & ROSETTA, though we will be providing complimentary iced tea, lemonade, and water that can be taken into the “revival tent”. The performance will last approximately 90 minutes, and we ask that you not bring any outside food or drink with you to the event.
At performances of PRIMATING, full concessions will be offered for sale by the Little Rock Zoo.
