At the Rep, we convene live theatre experience. The Rep is an indispensable part of our community. Your gift – large or small – is crucial to the Rep’s success. Ticket sales are only one third of our budget. Donations are critical.  
And you can feel good about supporting the Rep.  Here is what people are saying:

  • “Absolutely powerful experience. My love for live theater is rekindled.”
  • “Nashville Rep shows are consistently excellent. Last year's Chicago was one of the best shows I've seen, including those on Broadway. A Raisin in the Sun was very, very good! I brought out-of-town visitors, who were greatly impressed.”
  • “I was absolutely blown away, tremendous show and I'm from Stamford, CT and got to Broadway often. This show was on equal footing, excellent job.”

A sustainable professional theatre is indispensable and vital for all Nashvillians. The Rep is committed to making theatre available for all. Support the Rep and our programs, including Pay What You Can nights, free community events and free tickets, and partnerships with local organizations. 

We know you have a lot of choices when donating. We sincerely hope you will consider The Rep.
