REP stages six major productions each year and provides Canberra theatre goers high quality and varied works. See Season 2017-18 for our current year's season.
REP also offers opportunities for people to extend their interest in theatre and to develop their skills through participation in all aspects of theatre production. See Membership for more information on becoming involved.
In addition to our major productions, REP STUDIO gives members the chance to take part in play readings or workshops.
Many members who first developed their skills at REP have moved on to careers in professional theatre. Rep also offers members a wide range of social activities.
Canberra Rep will provide the best range of opportunities (including social) to all theatre lovers in the ACT to participate in and develop high-quality contemporary and classical theatrical productions in an annual program for the public of Canberra.
