Real Experience for Professionals

The impetus for creating this new group came from the fact that Musicals with experienced adults are rarely done in this town - and certainly, after the casting process, I found we have many talented actors and singers here in Santa Fe. My intention is to not only support these actors by creating an outlet for their talent, but also to serve the community by providing Theatre that is well-cast and smartly envisioned and executed.

Developing New Artists

Santa Fe REP's purpose is to provide professional performing opportunities to both Adults and Teens. After serving on the Teaching Staff at National Dance Institute for nearly four years, I realized the need in this Community for furthering mentorship to teens by providing them professional performing experience with seasoned adults.

Warehouse 21 is our venue of choice, as well as our fiscal sponsor for exactly this reason - to integrate teens into every aspect of Production: Technical, Costuming, Producing, Acting, Music and Choreography.

Mission Statement

To provide high quality, well cast Musical and Contemporary Theatre to both savvy theatre-goers and committed, talented actors. In intimate, in-your-face settings, Santa Fe REP's productions will focus on the actor, book, and music, rather than extensive production values and, in a collaborative spirit, come together with existing theatrical venues to help raise awareness and support for local Theatre in Santa Fe.

REP, short for Repertory, means we will have musicals, contemporary plays, and new works in rotation. Our goal is to present three to four productions per year with a core group of actors and technicians.
