A Note from the Producing Artistic Director

Image Picker for Section 0

Thanks to our loyal patrons, subscribers, and donor for your continued support.  We’re very excited to announce the REP’s plans for 2021-2022.  The upcoming season brings a sensational selection of virtual offerings in the Fall and in early 2022 we are planning the REP’s much-anticipated return to live performances!

This Fall, the REP continues “On the Air and In the Cloud” with four amazing audio plays – a gripping classic drama, a thrilling horror, a provocative premiere, and a holiday favorite.  All of which will undoubtedly engage and entertain you.  Then, in early 2022, the REP is looking forward to being back on stage, performing live, and welcoming audiences back into the theatre!

We open the Fall season with Sherlock Holmes in A Scandal in Bohemia, adapted for radio by Denis Green and Anthony Boucher.  In this mystery, the King of Bohemia enlists the services of the great detective and his faithful friend Dr. Watson to recover a very valuable photograph that could ruin the young King.  Intrigue and adventure follow Holmes and Watson as they set about recovering this photograph and in the process discover a most cunning adversary.

October brings Halloween and Edgar Allan Poe’s The Murders in the Rue Morgue.  Adapted and directed by REP company member Michael Gotch, this frightening tale is sure to give you the chills.  Terrifying murders have shocked the city of Paris.  The victims’ bodies are so viciously brutalized, it seems only a supernatural strength could have committed these horrifying crimes.  With no suspect and contradicting witness reports, police are baffled.  Full of horror and all things grim, it’s the perfect Halloween treat.

We continue the season with the premiere of Votetrickery: A Spoken Word Symphony, written and directed by REP company member Hassan El-Amin.  Questions about voting rights are as old as the United States of America.  Today these questions are again dominating our nightly news headlines and being passionately debated in homes all over the country.  We’re excited to explore America’s history of voting and the unresolved voting rights issues that continue to plague our country today in this timely new piece.

We’re delighted to bring back our production of A Christmas Carol for the holiday season!  Immerse yourself in your imagination while following the cold-hearted miser Ebenezer Scrooge as he unwittingly sets out on a journey to rediscover the importance of kindness and compassion.  A delightful time for the entire family!

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

We’re delighted to announce that we anticipate a return to live performances in early 2022!

We are very excited about sharing our Fall audio offerings with you and everyone at the REP is looking forward to joyfully returning to live performances early in the new year.  We are eager to perform LIVE once again, and equally eager to welcome our patrons back to the theatre.  We have missed you and cannot wait to see you again!  Box office and ticketing information for live performances will be made available in the Fall.  We wish everyone a wonderful summer full of good health as we prepare for an exciting theatre season ahead.
