Leading Ladies

The Leading Ladies… 13 great seasons and beyond!

Rep Leading Ladies

Though the pandemic may have temporarily sidelined the fabulous shows we are honored to help underwrite, our passion for The Rep remains unshaken. Over 200 theatre lovers strong, The Rep’s Leading Ladies have played a major role in the theatre’s success, sponsoring 12 Mainstage productions, and raising over $800,000.

Now, as The Rep reimagines the way its art is shared and enjoyed, the Leading Ladies have taken the stage in a new role, providing critical support to The Rep’s expanded education programs, as well as its popular Imaginary Theatre Company. Nimble in every sense of the word, The Rep inspires audiences and the community through virtual programming, classroom resources and other unique opportunities.

Our world is changing, but the need for art prevails. The Leading Ladies are honored to continue our legacy of support to The Rep and invite you to join us in our mission today.
