The Arkansas Repertory Theatre, located in the heart of downtown Little Rock on Main Street, is a unique building steeped in almost 40 years of theatrical history.
We’re starting another weekly series where we highlight a different aspect of The Rep theatre called Theatre Thursday.
On site, you’ll find everything from a prop shop, costume shop and a second stage to a sprawling lounge, tons of storage space and workspace for our set and prop designers. And while the theatre is a hubbub of activity on a daily basis, The Rep also has spaces elsewhere.
This includes a scenic construction facility on South State Street, a new education building in the works across the street and two spaces you might not know of: two apartments to house interns and visiting actors and creative teams for our MainStage productions.
Here are a few interesting tidbits about our apartment buildings you might not know:
Peachtree Apartments, East Sixth Street
