The Rep is a 30+ year old performing arts center with a 220-seat theatre, staging approximately 320 performances annually. 

The Seacoast Repertory Theatre is an up and coming innovator on the American regional theatre scene. In the past year it has been featured in The New York Times, on NBC, and for its development and implementation of high quality live streaming systems, and for the resilience shown in staying in operation throughout the pandemic.
