Behind the Curtain Q&A: Box Office Manager Jeff Roper

Jeff Kitty

At the start of the season, we wanted to showcase the people behind the Rep stage in a series we would like to call “Behind the Curtain.” During this weekly series, we will highlight staff members who keep the Arkansas Repertory Theatre running on a daily basis a short Q&A.

With tickets on sale to our first show of the year, Memphis, it seemed fitting to highlight one of the first people you see here at the theatre: our lively Box Office Manager Jeff Roper.

Here is what he to say about his ticket-selling time here at The Rep:

How long you have worked at the Rep:  6 years

Education/training:  Bachelors in Journalism from the University of Central Arkansas

How’d you get into the theatre biz:  A friend knew Kelly Ford and told me she was looking for a Box Office Manager.

Why your job rocks:  So much positive affirmation derived from getting people in to see great shows.

Best work day ever:  The night we had The Who tribute band perform

Favorite Rep show you’ve worked on and whyTommy because the cast was amazing.

One thing people would be surprised about your job:  How little we actually see the actors.

Favorite seat in the house:  H 7,6

Best job perk:  Getting to watch rehearsals and see the show come together.

Be sure to check back every week to get a glimpse at a different member of The Rep staff and buy your tickets to Memphis here!
