The Forida Rep puts on great plays in two theaters. They are all well acted and well staged. Some are very thought provoking and meaningful. We are delighted season ticket holders

I have been to two or three plays there are it was a great experience. I loved the plays and like supporting the small venues bringing live theatre to our area.

Really fast moving classic with a really fun and well performed music score. These older shows are run year after year for a good reason. They were well written from the start. And the Florida Rep always does justice to the classic musicals and comedies.
