Board of Directors
The REP’s Board of Governors consists of a group of dedicated individuals who volunteer their time and work to steward the theatre towards the pursuit of its mission. The Board meets regularly as a group and also in committees to ensure the continued success of the theatre. We are very thankful to these individuals for the leadership they provide, and their commitment to seeing that The REP continues to be successful for many years to come.
