With the new MainStage season in full swing, we want to showcase the people behind the Rep stage in a series called “Behind the Curtain.” This weekly Q&A series will highlight staff members who keep the Arkansas Repertory Theatre running on a daily basis.
Someone who helps keep the Box Office running smoothly during performances is Box Office Assistant Bill HIll.
Here is what he has to say about his theatre experience here at The Rep:
When did you start working at The Rep? September 1997

How’d you get into the theatre biz: Came to “help out for a while” and have been here almost 17 years
