Rochester Needs the Rep!

We know that Rochester is better off because the Rep is here. By presenting programming that will challenge and delight both actor, audience member and technician alike, we know our place in Rochester's theatre scene is now more important than ever. Won't you join us in securing our future? Any size donation you make will make a world of difference for the Rep, and impact the work we do in our community.

Celebrating 40 Years

Our 39th Season was an incredible feat of dedication and passion. We were able to produce a full season that showcased the talents of over 100 volunteers, artists and staff. Thanks in no small part to donors like you, we were able to celebrate many victories from last season. Here are some of the highlights: 

  1. Our new HVAC system is now fully operational! 
  2. We presented a nearly sold-out run of the American classic A Raisin in the Sun, working towards our efforts of diversity, equity and inclusion 
  3. Premiered our new logo and tagline 
  4. Window decals, exterior lighting and a fresh coat of paint continue to improve our curb appeal 
  5. Lisa Higgs joins our staff as our new grant writer 

Now we are well underway with our 40th Season. Having been recognized for our contributions to the arts scene in Rochester, Mayor Norton stopped by our 40th Season celebration to declare Oct 6th as Rochester Repertory Theatre Day! Of course, none of this would be possible without you. The outpouring of donations we received last year played a vital role in our success last season. From all us here at the Rep, we say "THANK YOU!" Now we are full steam ahead! 

We Can't Do it Without YOU! 

The Rep's 39 Seasons have been made possible by the generous contributions of our volunteers, patrons, artists and sponsors. As we launch our 40th Season our mission and tradition or brining you intimate theatre thrives. Join us, won’t you? In addition to the projects mentioned below, your donations are used to:

What's Next? 

We are so proud of the progress we've made, but we want to continue to make the Rep the best and can, and continue to carve our our niche in the arts scene in Rochester and the surrounding areas. As we continue to improve and update our facilities, we have several large scale projects down the line that your donations can help make a reality!
