Take a look behind the curtain


When you’re watching a performance at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, you are probably so engrossed that you aren’t thinking about what exactly goes into bringing another world to life onstage. But after the curtain falls and the applause dies down, you might find yourself scratching your head thinking, how on earth did they do that?

If so, you’re in luck. On Monday, November 7, The Rep is pulling back the curtain on spaces rarely open to the public, so theatergoers can learn how all that magic is made—directly from the creative folks responsible for making it. The Rep’s open house will take place from 4 to 6 p.m., with behind-the-scenes tours taking place every half-hour from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Areas featured on the tour include costume and props shops, dressing rooms, rehearsal halls and more.

This event is also an opportunity to welcome The Rep’s new producing artistic director, John Miller-Stephany. Complimentary refreshments and live music will be provided in the lobby. For more information, please visit TheRep.org.
