This is a modern theater experience with comfortable seating, lots of legroom, and no blocked views. Shows are a mix of dramas, comedies and an occasional musical.

We have seen about 3-4 plays a year for the last 4 years and have really enjoyed them. The REP Theater offers a wide variety of plays and each one has been very professionally done. The quality of the plays is consistent and the value can not be beat.

I've seen quite a few plays at the REP theatre. They are very inexpensive, and still very professional. I've never been disappointed.

Consistently high quality performances, great sets and production qualities in a small theater setting. Wide ranging selection of plays, inclusive of some debuts. Great value for the price of admission. We are season subscribers.
