New Plays. New Orleans.

Southern Rep Theatre, one of the region’s leading non-profit theatres, is nationally recognized for our commitment to new play development. From home-grown plays by Louisiana writers to regional premieres of the best new Off-Broadway & Broadway shows, we tell stories that resonate, engage, and inspire. Our programs range from mainstage plays to arts education for all ages. We offer professional development programs for local theatre artists, a new community engagement initiative – and New Orleans’ only live, ongoing soap opera (seriously).

This season, we’re in residence at Loyola University, but we kick off with the regional premiere of FUN HOME with our friends at NOCCA in their Nims Black Box Theatre. Starting in 2018-19, find us in our new permanent home on historic Bayou Road in the former St. Rose de Lima church building, currently under renovation!
