Nashville Repertory Theatre exists to serve through creating “ah-ha!” moments that inspire empathy, prod intellectual and emotional engagement, and expend the creative capacity of audiences and artists through the dynamic connection unique to live theatre!

We are Nashville's premier regional theatre company, founded in 1985 by Martha Rivers Ingram and Mac Pirkle, celebrating 35 years of presenting musicals, hot new plays, and reimagined classics to Nashville. Every year, over 20,000 members of the local community get to experience a Nashville Rep production, special event, or outreach program.

Nashville Rep boasts an ambitious season every year, featuring spectacular main stage productions, the Ingram New Works Project, The Nashville Rep Conservatory, professional development and educational programs, outreach activities, and several special events, plus our props and costume rentals program! We love our home here in Nashville and are proud to be leaders in the Nashville arts community. Employing on average over 200 actors, playwrights, designers, directors, musicians, technicians, and educators each year, Nashville Rep is the leading employer of theatrical artists in middle Tennessee!

Nashville Rep is honored to have been recognized across Tennessee as a theatrical company of the highest quality. We have been named Best Professional Theatre by the Nashville Scene, the Best Local Theatre by The Tennesseean, and were formally recognized for thirty years of service to the community by the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County. Our shows, actors, directors, and designers have been honored with awards from Nfocus, the First Night Awards, Nashville Scene, The Tennessean, and more. Thank you, Tennessee, for supporting the work we love to do!
