Now entering our 30th Mainstage Season, Southern Rep Theatre is nationally recognized for our commitment to new play development. Our mission is to develop and produce new plays that reflect the diversity of the city we call home, to provide our audience with professional theatre of the highest artistic quality and achievement, and to establish a creative working environment that nurtures theatre professionals. We strive to use the artistry of theatre to enlighten, educate, and entertain audiences, and further extend that service through educational and outreach programs.

This season, Southern Rep Theatre will co-produce the local premiere of AIRLINE HIGHWAY with the University of New Orleans in October and then begin a residency at Loyola University in November 2016. Starting in 2018-19, we’ll be in our permanent home on Bayou Road, at the historic crossroads of New Orleans!
