A Note from the Producing Artistic Director

Image Picker for Section 0

Thanks to our loyal patrons, subscribers, and donors for your continuing patience and support during this challenging time.

Inside our unwavering commitment to the health and safety of our community, we will continue to delay live, in-person productions until it is unquestionably safe and responsible to bring us together for live theatre.

Starting in February, your REP will present a variety of entertaining and engaging audio productions while we also attend to the important work of making our organization more equitable, diverse, and inclusive, on stage and off, and planning for our return to live performance – hopefully by no later than the Fall of 2021.

Although there is no substitute for live theatre, we feel confident that you will enjoy listening to the exciting and varied audio offerings we have lined up for you this Winter and Spring.  

We start off in February with the world premiere of TALK ABOUT RACE, an original audio performance written and directed by REP actor Hassan El-Amin.  This original production examines racial relations in America in a fastmoving, entertaining, and thought-provoking program featuring the REP’s talented resident actors presenting some little-known American history, music, and rousing oratory.

We then continue the season with a radio version of one of America’s most popular comedies, ARSENIC AND OLD LACE.  This one-hour audio version, originally aired in 1952, will have you roaring with laughter as our resident actors portray the wonderful characters in this beloved play and enact the hilarious story of the mad Brewster family, including a fugitive son who now looks like Frankenstein’s monster, his drama critic brother, the tipsy surgeon who made him look that way, the brother who thinks he is Teddy Roosevelt, and the sweet old aunts who have a habit of poisoning their guests and burying them in the cellar.

In March, we follow ARSENIC AND OLD LACE with far more sinister murders in our series, THE POIROT MURDER MYSTERIES.  We will present audio productions of two Agatha Christie short stories, each featuring her most popular creation, the idiosyncratic Belgian detective Hercule Poirot in spellbinding dramas written and directed by REP actor/ director/playwright Michael Gotch, whose audio production of DRACULA thrilled audiences this past Fall.

All audio productions will continue to be offered free of charge as a special thank you for the loyalty, support, and encouragement we have received from our patrons and donors.

Although we are going to be ready to perform live as soon as it is safe and responsible to do so, at this time it is impossible to say with certainly when that will be.

It is, however, certain that the pandemic has had and will continue to have a massively negative impact on the REP’s finances. We are consequently more than ever grateful for donations from community members.
