The Repertory Theatre (The REP) is based in Seaside, Florida and committed to a long-range vision of building itself into a world-class regional theatre company, and an immediate mission of providing high-quality professional theatre to audiences of all ages. We seek to be the premier arts organization in Northwest Florida, providing programs and productions that make an essential and lasting contribution to the quality of life in our area.
Founded in the spring of 2001, The REP is Northwest Florida’s premier professional theatre company. Celebrating its thirteenth season, the REP has established itself as a first-rate regional theatre, attracting some of the finest talent from around the country. The REP’s host of talented theatre professionals and group of dedicated volunteers work together to entertain over 25,000 people each year. Having established an indoor home on the stage of the 75-seat Meeting Hall Theatre in downtown Seaside, Florida, the REP has never stopped broadening its horizons, adding new programming and new venues in South Walton to better reach its expanding audience base.
Hello, I’m Brook Stetler, and I have the privilege of being the Executive Director of The REP.
My life-long passion for the theatre was nurtured by my parents and grandparents taking me to see local productions back home in Kansas, it was enhanced by a school and college program that pushed me to explore the stage and theatre arts in more detail and, now, is fulfilled by being able to act in and produce great professional drama at this remarkable regional theatre, The REP.
Through this theatre, it is a delight to be able to give something back to this community. To support others who also want to pursue the theatre as a career – our roster of company members over the 13 years of The REP has seen some remarkable talent. Or to provide opportunities for others to learn in the creative environment of live theatre – lighting, costume and set design are just some of the skills our volunteers and interns can develop. But also the countless numbers who simply want to be entertained; enjoy the spectacle of live performance and enjoy an evening at the theatre with friends and like-minded neighbors.
This year we are looking to expand the range of programs and performances we offer but, as ever, rest assured we have some outstanding theatre for your enjoyment. Welcome to The REP 2014 Season!
