Through the passion and electricity of live theater performed to the highest standards of excellence, New Rep seeks to spark community conversations on crucial contemporary issues. Our work expands and challenges the human spirit of both artists and audiences. We present world premieres, contemporary plays and classic works in several intimate settings. Our productions are designed to be accessible to all. We are committed to education and enrichment for learners of all ages, with a special dedication to the creation of innovative in-school programming and outreach to underserved audiences. We embrace theatre as the basis for enduring connections with our community and as a springboard for meaningful civic engagement. New Rep is an active advocate for the arts and a major voice in the national dialogue defining the role of theater in our culture.
What we do:
Since 2005, New Repertory Theatre has been the professional theatre company in residence at the Mosesian Center for the Arts (formerly the Arsenal Center for the Arts) in Watertown, Massachusetts. Complete with two performance spaces, the 340-seat MainStage Theater and the 90-seat BlackBox Theater, the MCA has allowed New Rep to expand and enhance its programming.
Since the benefits of the arts reach far beyond the walls of the theatre, New Rep has created educational programs to enrich and foster the spirit of creativity in students. New Rep’s Classic Repertory Company tours professional caliber productions throughout Massachusetts, with a special emphasis on bringing underserved communities affordable, or even free, performances. Annually, Classic Repertory Company reaches over 14,000 students.
New Rep serves communities in the Boston and Greater Boston area, including but not limited to Boston, Cambridge, Watertown, Belmont, Newton, Needham, Waltham, Arlington, Lexington, Weston, Wellesely, Wayland, Natick, and Framingham.
