LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The Arkansas Repertory Theater sits in the heart of downtown Little Rock. The theater has 377 seats and is responsible for producing more than 350 productions including 45 world premieres.
Here are five things Adam Bledsoe and Mariel Ruiz learned about The Rep!
1 - There's a tunnel underneath the stage that performers use to quickly move from one side of the stage to another.
2 - As you make your way down to the tunnel and dressing rooms, there's a staircase of signatures. The thousands of signatures are from past cast and crew members at The Rep. "It was so cool. The signatures cover every wall," said Blesoe.
3 - The Rep is funded mostly by donations, subscriptions and a national endowment. Click here to donate. Hundreds of volunteers also help run the productions.
4 - The Arkansas Repertory Theater is available for building rentals. Parties or events can rent the auditorium, Foster's at The Rep lounge, the second stage rehearsal space or the lobby.
5 - Some performers believe a ghost haunts the third floor rehearsal room. The ghost is named Bob. Actors say they've seen messages left on the windows.
