Welcome to the New Southern Rep Theatre!
We're just getting started.
Southern Rep Theatre has opened its doors to the public in its new home in the former St. Rose de Lima Church building on historic Bayou Road! Part of the Rose Collaborative, the new Southern Rep Theatre is a three-stage theater complex featuring a state-of-the-art flexible Mainstage, the Lagniappe Stage and Sanctuary Bar, the Hal Brown Outdoor Community Stage for free public performances, administrative offices, and the Rose Studio arts education & rehearsal space.
Thanks to the leadership of our Board and early supporters who shared their bold dream for the new Southern Rep Theatre, our Capital Campaign for this new space is 40% funded. These visionaries opened the doors by underwriting the essential up-front costs—but this is just the beginning!
