Arkansas Repertory Theatre exists to create a diverse body of theatrical work of the highest artistic standards that entertains, engages, and challenges local, regional, and national audiences. Outreach programming for young audiences across Arkansas reflects The Rep's commitment to the educational value of the performing arts. The Rep works intensively to provide historical and artistic content through talkback, lobby displays, study guides, and by bringing creative artists into the community. Founded in 1976, Arkansas Rep is the state's largest professional non-profit theater. Arkansas Rep enlists the talents and skills of artists, administrators, and technicians from a national pool of seasoned artisans and experienced leaders while providing a training area for emerging young professionals. Therefore, residency hosts can feel confident that representatives from The Rep will have theater experience as well as the skills to develop a rapport with, and serve as role models for young people of all economic, social, and cultural backgrounds. Hosts can expect that most of The Rep's residency leaders hold a B.A., B.F.A., M.A., M.F.A., or M.B.A. in addition to their professional experience. In addition, The Rep maintains professional affiliations with the following: Actor's Equity Association (the Union of Professional Actors and Stage Managers), Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers, United Scenic Artists and IATSE.
