Philanthropic Spotlight: San Diego Repertory Theatre

Contact Us

One of Pro Back Office’s newest clients is the San Diego Repertory Theatre, more commonly known as “the REP”.  This month’s philanthropic spotlight is focused on this special part of San Diego’s diverse history.

Their mission is informed by a commitment to artistic virtuosity, partnerships with singular artists and our inquisitive neighbors who spark lively conversations about their role as citizens in the bi-national region we call home. They choose provocative works of theatre to inspire audiences and artists to build the communication bridges needed to understand who we are today, and who we might become.

The company was founded in 1976 by Sam Woodhouse and D.W. Jacobs. Since moving to the Lyceum in 1986, they have produced 51 mainstage productions by Latino playwrights and hosted many artistic residencies.

In addition to a 1998 Tony Award® Nomination for It Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues, they have received over 200 awards for artistic excellence from the San Diego Theatre Critics Circle, Patté Theatre Awards, NAACP, Backstage West, Dramalogue, and StageSceneLA. In 2005, the San Diego Theatre Critics Circle presented the REP with the Craig Noel Award “For 30 Years of Artistic Dedication to Downtown and Diversity”.

As a non-profit theatre company, San Diego Repertory Theatre relies on individual, corporate, foundation and government support to produce intimate, provocative, inclusive theatre. The theatre produces and hosts over 550 events and performances a year celebrating the diversity and creativity of the community.
