TampaRep creates transformative, relevant, and compelling professional theatre that connects our diverse audience and artists through meaningful and inspiring shared experiences.
TampaRep’s vision is to be a thriving regional theatre, built on creative excellence and inclusivity, which enhances Tampa as a cultural destination and enriches and reflects our community as an artistic home for all to discover, share, create, and experience meaningful stories.
TampaRep produces theatre with an emphasis on American drama. We create an experience — one that the audience completes — in productions that are innovative, provocative, and classic.
TampaRep’s first production took place in July, 2011 — Alcestis, a Greek tragedy by Euripides. During our first year, we produced Cold Storage and celebrated our one-year anniversary with a production of A Streetcar Named Desire. TRT2, TampaRep’s incubator company, also presented three productions: Musings of a “Postmodern” Romantic, Tartuffe, and Tampa Wrights: One-Act Plays by Tampa Playwrights. Now beyond our 10th season, we have continued to present a mix of plays, from the classic (Hamlet) to the contemporary (Silent Sky), along with our American focus, notably with a series of plays by Tennessee Williams: Streetcar, The Glass Menagerie, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and an award-winning production of Eugene O’Neill’s The Iceman Cometh.
TampaRep: Innovative. Provocative. Classic.
