  • Mission statement

    It is the purpose of Birmingham Repertory Theatre to produce a range of world-class theatre to inspire the diverse communities of Birmingham, the West Midlands and beyond. It is a continuing ambition to nurture new artists by offering creative training, and it is our aim to inspire a lifelong love of theatre and develop future audiences through extensive learning and education programmes.

    As a charity The REP relies on the generosity of donors, funders and sponsors to continue our extensive work both on stage and in the community. In 2017 we launched REP First, an ambitious fundraising campaign which aims to raise £1million. We have always been pioneers and regularly provide our audiences with their first ever experience of theatre and offer the next generation of theatre makers a first step in their careers.

    REP First will support three core areas of our work: nurturing young performers and theatre makers, creating new works and reaching out to new audiences and communities.

    We invite you to play your part in this new and exciting chapter and invest in the future of The REP.
