I have been a season ticket holder for 3 years, and enjoy each play I've seen. Acting is fabulous, really first-rate, and they perform a wide variety of plays for their audiences. The theater is small enough to allow audience members to feel "close to the action" (we've been seated all over the theater), and all seats are great. Well... More

The REP Theatre is by far the best performing group in the region. The quality of performances by the actors is unparalleled, but easy to take for granted is the expert sound and light design, the flawless costumes and props, and the stunning scenery. Some of the best productions I've seen of classic theatre works (Shakespeare, Shaw, etc.) have been... More

Have been attending the REP for 4 years. The professional company is excellent especially in farces and comedies. Their timing is excellent. The seats are comfortable and the acoustics are excellent.

We have been subscribers for three seasons and really enjoy the variety of plays offered by the REP. All seats are comfortable and have good views. It's not a huge venue so you're able to hear the actors clearly. As with any subscription there is the occasional play that doesn't interest us but the variety of musicals, comedies and dramas...

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. The shows are well acted and produced. Consequently, they are well received. While it is possible to go to a big city, why would you spend a ton more money for a comparable... More

This resident company put on an excellent production of Macbeth in the intimate theatre. They always do a worthwhile performance at a very reasonable price.
