Arkansas Repertory Theatre

Arkansas Repertory Theatre exists to produce a diverse body of theatrical work of the highest artistic standards. With a focus on dramatic storytelling that illuminates the human journey, The Rep entertains, engages and enriches local and regional audiences of all ages and backgrounds. 

  • The Rep is the state's largest non-profit professional theatre.

  • Ticket sales account for less than half of what it costs to create a MainStage production.

  • The Rep maintains extensive arts in education programs, both in Central Arkansas and across the state, reaching more than 12,000 young people each year.

More than 70,000 patrons experience The Rep's work annually, making The Rep an economic engine for downtown Little Rock. 

After witnessing a violent crime committed by her mobster boyfriend, flamboyant lounge singer Deloris Van Cartier is placed deep undercover in the witness protection program. Posing as a young nun in a convent, she struggles to fit in with the Mother Superior’s strict rules and regulations. Sharing her love for music, she injects modern panache into the choir’s stodgy performances. This soon turns their struggling church on its head and teaches the sisters the meaning of soul, and in return, they teach her the meaning of community. Based on the 1992 movie of the same name, Sister Act will be showing at The Arkansas Repertory Theatre until February 26, 2017. We invite you to join the cast and crew for a panel discussion about this production and more.
